The secrets of colors in the ocean

This year, the scientific mediators of the Aquarium La Rochelle invite the whole family to explore the mysteries hidden behind the colors with which many marine species are adorned, from silvery reflections to multicolored sparkles. Through fifteen illustrated themes, mixing scientific information and games, we discover that all these nuances allow marine animals to develop incredible faculties to protect themselves, warn and even seduce!
