In this Oct. 28, 2012 photo released by The Port of Los Angeles, an aerial view of a 100-year-old pier on the San Pedro waterfront in Los Angeles will become a future $500 million marine research center, called AltaSea. The AltaSea center will take 15 to 20 years to complete, using 28 acres to house labs with circulating seawater, classrooms and support facilities. A first phase, which will cost $155 million and is anchored by the Southern California Marine Institute, is expected to be completed in 2018. Funding includes a $25 million gift from the Annenberg Foundation to kick off the development. (AP Photo/The Port of Los Angeles, Michael Justice)
