Dive into the ocean: the University Aquarium
Discover the seabed as you've never seen it before
Located in one of the pavilions of the former Artillery Barracks, the Aquarium of the University of Murcia aims to facilitate the public's approach in general to the marine environment. It is a notable complement to the cultural and playful offer of the city.
The Aquarium is a useful source of learning
The Aquarium is a useful source of learning, thanks to the use of the large amount of teaching resources available.It consists of two floors where you can enjoy a tour of the most characteristic marine ecosystems both tropical and Mediterranean.
In it you can see coral reefs and live fish from different seas and oceans
On the tour of the Aquarium there are coral reef environments and live fish from the Indian Ocean, Pacific Ocean, Red Sea, Caribbean Sea and of course a large tank with an extensive representation of the different communities in the Mediterranean Sea. The volume of tanks ranges from 6,000 liters to 150,000 liters.
You can also see the stonefish, one of the most venomous animals in the world
There is also an interesting series of smaller tanks, dedicated to showing complex relationships that can be observed between different marine animals, such as symbiosis between clown fish and anemones or cases of adaptation to the environment as diverse as the perfect camouflage of the stonefish, one of the most venomous animals in the world.
