    More info: Blue Cavern Point is on the eastern edge of Santa Catalina Island and around 25 miles off the coast of San Pedro. In the shallow edges of the water cling starfish, sea urchins and sea cucumbers. Farther out in deeper seas, there are bright orange garibaldi and giant sea bass which live in swaying forests of giant kelp.

    The Aquarium has three giant sea bass under a special permit from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. The two larger bass have inhabited the Honda Blue Cavern exhibit since 1998, and have been identified as male and female (the larger of the two) because of their spawning behaviour. They are thought to be about 30 years old.
