Aquariums allow many people to discover and admire the many species that inhabit the marine world, which are sometimes difficult to observe in their natural environment.
Indeed, it is difficult to go around the world to discover the diversity of ecosystems and animals that are hidden there! Starting with the European coastline and ending with the warm waters of the tropics, the Aquarium offers a good overview of the different climates that are home to fish, molluscs, crustaceans, sharks, turtles and coral.
Moreover, it is complex to go directly to the marine species without disturbing them. Each dive has consequences: a flipper stroke is likely to disturb a fish or break a coral, and small gestures that are harmless to humans can completely confuse the cues (visual, acoustic, olfactory…) of marine animals. A simple stone turned over, for example, can disturb the organisms that are stuck to it and develop there.
Aquariums are a unique opportunity to admire marine species and their environment!
