Displays of Orkney Marine Life, Fishing and Sea Farming
The Orkney Marine-Life Aquarium exhibits Marine Life found in the waters of Orkney and the Scottish coast in addition to a unique opportunity to see and understand some aspects of the Marine environment, the strange creatures that inhabit our "Inner Space" and the utilisation of the sea by man in fishing and aquaculture.
A remarkable variety of Sea-Life on display; much of it gathered by fishermen working in Scapa Flow and Orkney Coastal Waters.
The strong tides and treacherous eddies of the Pentland Firth and around Orkney have protected many species of shellfish, particularly Lobsters, allowing them to grow to an extraordinary size.
Enjoy a close up encounter with remarkable creatures!
