     History
    "In August, 1954, Marineland of the Pacific opened its doors to the public for the first time. Located at the tip of the beautiful Palos Verdes Peninsula in Los Angeles County, California, it was the largest oceanarium in the world. Five million dollars were invested in the project to make it the most unusual cultural, educational and entertainment center on the Pacific Coast................................................................................................ .............................................................................The fabulous display of marine life at Marineland of the Pacific was ever-changing. Visitors found a new show each time they came. From day to day and week to week, new specimens of deep sea fish and animals were added. The whales, dolphins, porpoises, seals and sea lions were enriched with new displays of ability, and strange sea creatures from far-away oceans were displayed in exhibits reflecting their natural environments. A master plan called for the construction of more display pools, fish exhibits, gardens, shops and other interesting developmments in the ongoing years ahead."

    Heres an interesting note.
    "The closing of Marineland may have been in part to the high concentrations of Barite in the surrounding area. This element is known to have an adverse effect on Pilot Whales."
