Inscription.
The Monterey Bay Aquarium stands on the site of the old Hovden Cannery. In its heyday, the cannery processed tons of sardines every day. But by the 1960s the sardines had disappeared, and the cannery closed its doors in 1972.

Now you can see shimmering schools of silvery sardines - and many other local animals - alive and thriving in the aquarium's world-renowned exhibits.
