The Maine State Aquarium does not, at any time, guarantee that there will be certain species — including sharks — on display. Exhibits are subject to specimen availability and specimen health. If at any time aquarium staff feel that specimen health is in jeopardy — whether by sickness, stress, or guest interaction — they reserve the right to take specimens off display. In the event that staff feel that the health of specimens in our touch tank areas is being compromised from guest interactions, they reserve the right to ask guests to leave the exhibit area for the safety of our specimens.
