Though not particularly well known, swell sharks are unassuming, harmless to humans and completely fascinating. Listen in as we discuss one of the most remarkable animals we’ve ever had the pleasure to meet.   

As chief executive officer, John Racanelli leads a team of 600 full and part-time employees and 1,000 volunteers in pursuing the National Aquarium’s mission to inspire conservation of the world’s aquatic treasures. More than 1.5 million people annually visit the Aquarium’s venue in Baltimore, Maryland, while millions more are touched by the Aquarium’s education programs, outreach activities, social media campaigns and conservation initiatives.
