Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers have suspended the license of the SeaQuest Interactive Aquarium at a Jefferson County mall after dozens of complaints and studies of accidents on the facility because it opened final summer time.
The division held a listening to for SeaQuest and determined to droop the aquarium’s license for 2 years after it had “quite a few violation episodes and failed to stick to a number of of the circumstances of their state licensure,” in response to a CPW information launch. The suspension applies to species on the aquarium which are regulated by the CPW.
The aquarium plans to remain open on the Southwest Plaza mall in Littleton and change these species with people who don’t require licensing by the CPW, the division stated.
SeaQuest spokesperson Elsa MacDonald stated the suspension handled regulated animals and stated the ability needed to ship some animals — together with otters, capybara, kookaburra, some fish, a sloth and three forms of snakes — to their sister services, which the spokesperson stated individuals weren’t in a position to work together with.
