The newly-opened Dubai Aquarium and Discovery Centre area has been accredited with having the world’s largest acrylic viewing panel, superseding the Churaumi Aquarium in Okinawa, Japan.

The panel measures 32.88m x 8.3m and is 750mm thick.

Located strategically in the centre of a gigantic shopping mall, the 50m long aquarium main tank offers views into the incredible diversity of marine life from all levels of the mall.
