CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) - Fans of sharks have a high-tech way to monitor the swimming animals as part of a new display at the Texas State Aquarium.

The “Saving Sharks” exhibit opened Tuesday at the aquarium in Corpus Christi.

The $325,000 exhibit allows visitors to track tagged sharks via computer.

Guests can also touch bamboo and epaulette sharks, plus check out a diving cage. The exhibit also features efforts to preserve shark populations.

The exhibit is supported by OCEARCH, the Houston Museum of Natural Science and the Harte Research Institute for Gulf of Mexico Studies at Texas A&M; University-Corpus Christi.
