SeaWorld is enjoying record revenues despite the negative publicity from the documentary Blackfish. CEO Jim Atchison told TheStreet that it has been a target of animal activists since the parks opened 50 years ago. SeaWorld prefers to focus on the 23,000 stranded animals it has rescued. Atchison also feels that attendance has been strong at SeaWorld branded parks from October through December and its sponsors, like Southwest Air have decided to remain.

Disclosure: TheStreet's editorial policy prohibits staff editors, reporters and analysts from holding positions in any individual stocks.
