Sharks patrol these waters...

From wiki: "The main tank [at Okinawa's Churaumi Aquarium is], called the 'Kuroshio Sea', holds 7,500-cubic meters (1,981,290 gallons) of water and features the world's second largest acrylic glass panel, measuring 8.2 meters by 22.5 meters with a thickness of 60 centimeters." (correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the largest panel is at the Osaka Aquarium, which also houses whale sharks).
