Bristol Aquarium is a centre for education, leisure and entertainment. Visitors are inspired by a whole range of things on a visit and drop questions to us in a box so we thought it was important to share a selection of these answers with everyone.
Bristol Aquarium has introduced a brand new species of deep sea fish to its displays this week. The blue-grey Atlantic Wreckfish, also known as Stone Bass, have distinctive spines that run along their bodies and a large mouth with a protruding jaw.
This week, Bristol’s city centre Aquarium, has welcomed three new tropical sharks to it’s collection. Visitors to Bristol Aquarium can see three juvenile Japanese Hound Sharks in their new forever home. There are two females and one male, currently 80cm in length they will grow to be around 1.5metres long!
When it comes to sharks, everyone is fascinated by the size and power of these sea predators, and the little guys are sadly forgotten. Bigger doesn’t necessarily mean better, and these species prove that small sharks are just as fascinating as their larger relatives.
