Baltimore Wins AGAIN in the #SuperFISHBowl

Published February 05, 2013

Super FISH Bowl

The competition this weekend between Baltimore and San Francisco was fierce both on the field and in the water, as National Aquarium and California Academy of Sciences went head-to-head in the Super FISH Bowl!

The task for each team was simple: ask their respective communities to show support by "liking" the official contest photo on each organization's Facebook page. Each "like" equated to a $1 donation (provided by an anonymous donor) to the winning city's animal care and conservation efforts.

In addition to rallying the community, we had a lot of fun drafting our fantasy "fishball" team and stacking our "players" up against the opposition!

In the end, both competitions were CLOSE. It was certainly a tough fight from deserving teams!

We would like to sincerely thank and congratulate California Academy of Sciences on a great Super FISH Bowl. The beauty of our competition is that either outcome means a win for ocean conservation!

We would also like to thank our amazing community for rallying in support of the Aquarium, with YOUR help we were able to raise $1,310 for our animal rescue program!
