With more than 50 aquariums, OZEANEUM Stralsund presents a journey through the underwater world of the northern seas – unique in Europe.
Cold-water corals: It has long been thought that corals live only in the well-lit surface waters of the tropics. However, these creatures are also found in extensive reefs along the continental slopes up to 1,500 meters deep. Few aquariums in the world feature these deep-water fish. During an expedition in the Trondheim fjord in Norway, museum divers recovered animals from a depth of over 100 meters.
