Our annual stock-take is taking place this weekend (Saturday January 19 to Sunday January 20 2019) with our own version of a ‘fishy census!’ Throughout the weekend, we’re inviting visitors to help spot and record the number of certain species including sharks, rays and seahorses.
A new female has joined Bristol Aquarium’s male Atlantic Wolffish (Anarhichas lupus) which is arguably one of the ugliest fish homed at the city centre attraction. The wolffish live deep in the Atlantic ocean, distinguished by their unique set of protruding teeth, which they use to crush the shells of their prey.
Two juvenile undulate rays (Raja undulata) have taken residence in Bristol Aquarium’s nursery tank to raise awareness of endangered species to visitors. The undulate rays have been given ‘endangered’ status by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) meaning they are at very high risk of extinction in the wild.
