Your Aquarium journey starts in Plymouth Sound. In this exhibit, we’ve worked hard to nurture the marine life that’s literally on our doorstep – you may be surprised to see the diversity on offer. Our 17 tanks (which include a rockpool and a wave tank) are home to approximately 80 species of fish and invertebrates; including local sharks and rays.
The expansive panoramic view of the real Plymouth Sound will help your imagination make the link between our animals and their natural habitat.
You can meet Penny the lobster and Denzel the boarfish. In this area you can learn what makes all our animals so special, discover their individual personalities and determine the threats they face.
