GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - The developers of a proposed Gulfport harbor casino want to build an outdoor pool with a shark tank.

The Sun Herald (https://bit.ly/2lDuqXu ) reports the Golden Harbor Casino Resort & Spa has met its requirement to show $40 million in funding by Feb. 28 and has submitted plans with the city to build a casino, high-rise hotel, parking garage and pool on 10.7 acres on the west side of the public harbor.

The shark tank is listed as a tie-in to The Mississippi Aquarium, which the city is planning to build across from the harbor.

The total project is expected to cost $140 million.

Kentucky-based Encompass DDC submitted the plans on behalf of Mississippi Coast Entertainment, the limited partnership leasing 10.7 acres for a harbor casino from three property owners.
