Who do you call when you need a fake swamp with live alligators?
Orlando-based Bottled Ocean Inc. built a 6,000-square-foot re-creation of a Louisiana bayou to promote the History Channel’s Swamp People, a reality TV show about the people who hunt for alligators. Set up in New York City for 12 days in February, the exhibit had seven live alligators and a chef preparing Cajun delicacies.

Warehouse space isn’t just a production area for Bottled Ocean Inc. — it’s a rehabilitation center.
But not for people. Rather, the Orlando-based custom aquarium/coral maker, maintenance and sea-life rescue firm needed to make sure its space was large enough to accommodate eight 55-60 gallon tanks for sick or injured fish to get better, plus separate coral tanks. It also has a table that’s used to pack tropical fish going out to customers or to unpack foreign fish coming in from other countries.
Bottled Ocean, an Orlando-based aquatic management solutions company, has been awarded a contract, by Skanska USA Building Inc., to design and install a 1,500-gallon fish tank in the new Nemours Children’s Hospital at Lake Nona, which is scheduled to open in the fall of 2012.
