Aquarium at the TMBL

The former aquarium is being replaced by a new one. Part of it opened in June 2000.

About 20 tanks, containing hundreds of species of algae, invertebrates and fish, show the most typical bottom environments of the Skagerrak. It is probably the most species-rich sea-water aquarium in Sweden.

In the tapping tanks one is allowed to be in close contact with a number of large, colourful, spectacular and harmless marine species.
