That is all I have. I'm not sure I would want sea creatures in a zoo pack personally. So I aimed for species that seemed to fit in a zoo setting that were less migratory in nature or travel between continents (I know seals migrate, but they cope better in captivity compared to animals like dolphins)

This aquatic list is for the concept of an aquarium game in the style of Planet Zoo (a Planet Aquarium if you will), so feel free to add any variety of fully aquatic animals you'd want.
 
Here are mine and see soo need an sea world/ aquarium expansion.

Whales/ Dolphin [It is fair to still have them, zoos and aquarium in Asia still keep them]
1. Bottlenose Dolphin
2. Beluga
3. Orca
4. Commerson's Dolphin
5. Amazon River Dolphin (need some refresh water animal)
6. Chinese White Dolphin (they kept them in China0
7. Vaquita

I would love this, with marine life being some of the most at endanger animals going, it would be amazing to be able to learn about them. Seeing as in this world it is hard to even see things from the sea.
I would love maybe an added factor so to have dolphins and whales you have to earn them first, prove you can take care of them. even have it so if you mistreat them (by having surprise inspections you don't know about) you can lose the right to have them for some time in the game.
Maybe have a bigger marine recuse so, animals come from around the world you take them in for a limited time heal them, or bring them back to full heal and let them live in your zoo before they are then released back into the wild. It could be an amazing way to deal with the problem of having the bigger animals, as well as a great way to help people learn about these animals which unless you are really lucky most people will never see in their life. but yet they need help just like the land animals.
I would love to see deep-sea animals where you have to have a pressure pump which keeps the water at the deep level so an added factor they need to live, as well as different water types all on which animal and where they come from. so warm water animals would need a tank heater where cold water may need a cooler. you could even have mini habitats inside the bigger tanks. So have a coral reef where you can house small fish, starfish, and other smaller animals. as well as having them in exhibits by themself.
It would be cool to have a whole ecosystem being able to live together, so if you put some sharks in with some fish, you will see the fish cleaning the sharts they like do in the wild. seeing clownfish live inside the sea anemone and so on.
