TACOMA — Sharks might have a bad rap with some but officials at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium insist it’s the sharks that usually face danger when they cross paths with humans.

Hoping to shift public perception, the Tacoma zoo is debuting an attraction where people can swim with the sharks in the South Pacific Aquarium’s 240,000-gallon salt water tank. The idea is to offer a fun experience that also will spark interest and awareness.
