SwimSwam Film Fest: Kuroshio Sea – 2nd Largest Aquarium In The World

I’m a swim film festival fan, and I love this short video, Kuroshio Sea – 2nd Largest Aquarium In The World , captured by Jon Rawlinson. I posted this video over 2 years ago, and I keep coming back to it. I love how simple it is, just a locked-down camera and music, “Please Don’t Go” by Barcelona.

I am always on the lookout for great swim videos. If you have an interesting or beautiful swimming-related video, please submit to Gold Medal Mel Stewart at swimswam to be featured. We appreciate all points of view on pools, lakes, rivers and oceans. Please include a little background on why you captured the video and the equipment you used (cameras, lens, editing software, etc.). Feel free to add your own story as well.


The main tank called the “Kuroshio Sea” holds 7,500-cubic meters (1,981,290 gallons) of water and features the world’s second largest acrylic glass panel. Whale sharks and manta rays are kept amongst many other fish species in the main tank.

These videos are great addition to the site…..keep promoting the love of all things aquatic.

BTW, the largest aquarium in the world is in Atlanta Georgia and, as we discovered on a rare day off during a big meet, there are opportunities to visit the top of the tanks and, by appointment, one can get in the water and join the other swimmers….!
