Research Aquarium

We have a multi-use aquarium, with a variety of tanks and facilities for keeping and handling live specimens. In the entrance, large observation tanks contain different biotopes, displaying animals from a variety of habitats, including seagrass beds and rocky shores. We also have a shallow open tank that simulates a rock pool environment and this has anemones and cryptic fish. The rest of the aquarium has various types of holding tanks suited to small fish and invertebrates that need to be easily accessed and monitored. Some are glass for all round viewing, while others have solid sides and are open only at the top to minimise disturbance. Wet and dry benches are used to set up experiments in controlled systems and with replicates.
