Colorado Parks and Wildlife suspends SeaQuest aquarium’s license

in Business/Community

Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials have suspended the license of the SeaQuest Interactive Aquarium at a Jefferson County mall after dozens of complaints and reports of injuries at the facility since it opened last summer.

The department held a hearing for SeaQuest and decided to suspend the aquarium’s license for two years after it had “numerous violation episodes and failed to adhere to several of the conditions of their state licensure,” according to a CPW news release. The suspension applies to species at the aquarium that are regulated by the CPW.

The aquarium plans to stay open at the Southwest Plaza mall and replace those species with those that don’t require licensing by the CPW, the department said.
