Acquarium Sea World
Distance: 14 minutes
The Aquarium Mondo Marino is a marine environmental education centre and the headquarters of the Shark Study Centre – a scientific institute carrying out shark studies in South Africa, Madagascar and the Mediterranean.
An exciting journey of discovery of the blue planet, from the smallest organisms to the largest predators, comparing the rich marine life of the Mediterranean with that of distant tropical seas.
You can observe hundreds of specimens of various species: from groupers to moray eels, from sharks to butterfly fish, from clown fish to lobsters, comparing the animals that live in the Mediterranean Sea with those found in tropical and Atlantic waters.
