Recently, in partnership with SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment, Abu Dhabi's Miral announced significant progress on the construction of SeaWorld Abu Dhabi, the next generation of marine life theme parks and Yas Island's mega-development. It would feature the world's most vast aquarium and the new Yas SeaWorld Research and Rescue Center.

According to media reports, spanning the floor area of 183,000 square metres across five indoor levels, it would be home to the world's largest aquarium, which would contain 25 million litres of water and house more than 68,000 marine animals, including sharks, fish, manta rays and other species. 'Endless Vista', the main attraction of the aquarium would show visitors an impressive 20m tall vertical window revealing stunning aquatic scenes.

It would be located adjacent to the aquarium and theme park. It will be the first dedicated institute in marine research, rescue, rehabilitation in the United Arab Emirates. It would further act as a knowledge hub which would focus on indigenous Gulf and marine life ecosystems. 

The theme of SeaWorld Abu Dhabi would be 'One Ocean', which would emphasise interconnections between all life on Earth and the oceans. Another attraction would connect six different realms throughout the marine-life park.  The aquarium would have a theme of 'Endless Ocean', highlighting the scale and expanse of the marine display.
