Bottled Ocean, an aquatic solutions company, is pleased to announce its latest commercial aquarium project with New York Diner, a new restaurant by A&D Food Group with a 24/7/365 concept that is scheduled to open in June in the Gateway Village Plaza on Semoran Boulevard. New York Diner has contracted with Orlando-based Bottled Ocean to design and construct a custom, themed fish tank to bring a real flair of New York to Orlando.
Orlando-based aquatic management solutions company Bottled Ocean was recently lauded for its living exhibit, “Swamp in the City,” in promotion of HISTORY’s Season 3 premiere of Swamp People, winning a 2012 PRO Award for “Most Innovative Communication Strategy.” Season 3’s successful promotion efforts resulted in a 20 percent increase in premiere viewership over its previous season, and the exhibit attracted tens of thousands of visitors and more than 100 millions impressions.
Louisiana bayous don’t just appear in New York City, and the closest you get to seeing an alligator is when its hide is wrapped around a designer handbag.
But in February both popped up in Manhattan’s Chelsea Market as a promotion for the History Channel’s reality show, “Swamp People.” Behind the transplanted swamp — complete with live gators, 7,000 gallons of water and 15-foot-tall cypress trees — was none other than Flagler alumnus Greg Lund, ‘85.
Lund isn’t a gator hunter, but co-owner of the Orlando-based Bottled Ocean. The aquatic management company was hired to design and construct the elaborate exhibit promoting the third season of the show that chronicles alligator hunters as they troll Louisiana’s endless bayous.
Today in New York City, Orlando-based aquatic management solutions company Bottled Ocean unveiled its latest project, “Swamp in the City,” in promotion of HISTORY’s Season 3 premiere of Swamp People. The hit reality television show returns to the Network at 9pm on Thursday, February 9th.
Living in Central Florida, the state’s tourism capital, we often take for granted the various entertainment options available to us. From Mickey Mouse to Harry Potter, Central Florida’s got it covered. Within our tourism mecca, however, there are a number of “hidden” amenities and perks available to locals and visitors alike from some of the world’s best hotels and resorts, from first-class spas and celebrity run restaurants to Vegas-esque entertainment.
Among these hidden gems is one referred to as “Fish Heaven” – and although its unique features may be unknown to locals, its presence certainly is not.
