Images from Genova Aquarium

In January 2009 I got a chance to visit the Genova Aquarium, and I have added some images from this visit to the database. Check out my images of the very cool jellyfish tanks!



Posted on Mar 25, 2009

I was attending the launch of the Scubapro A700 regulator in Genova, and the manufacturer had rented the aquarium for the presentation and dinner.

Since this happened after regular opening hours I did not get to see the whole aquarium, but I was stunned (no pun intended!) by the beautiful Phyllorhiza punctata and Aurelia aurita jellyfish displays.

Genova Aquarium is one of the largest in Europe, boasting at total tank volume of 6 million litres holding over 500 species.
