The Tennessee Aquarium will be getting jellyfish from a California aquarium for a new exhibit to open next year.
“It will be part of a special exhibit,” said Thom Benson, a spokesman from the aquarium.
Aquarium staff members have prepared holding tanks and quarantine areas for the jellies’ arrival, Mr. Benson said.
Mr. Benson said the new exhibit would open sometime next year and the aquarium would make a detailed announcement about it after the first of the year.
The jellyfish are being shipped tonight from the Monterey Bay Aquarium, which closed its jellyfish exhibit — Jellies: Living Art — on Sunday, according to Kasia Deuel, spokeswoman for the California Aquarium.
