The 9 main themes of the St Malo aquarium


The Atlantic room, with its 7 aquariums, will make you discover the species of our Atlantic Ocean, that you think you know. But beware of congers!

And why not go and meet the colourful fish in the Mediterranean room with its 10 aquariums, the octopus known as the "chameleon of the seas", which may give you a demonstration of its intelligence.

And even more colourful, the tropical world will fill your eyes. The fish of the coral reefs compete in colour and originality. It's a little trip around the world and fantasy: dragon eel, stone fish, flying scorpion fish....
