As Europe’s first Catch and Release Aquarium, our animals only stay for up to four weeks. Check out this months coolest creature! The Hermit Crab is born without a shell, and has to move into a disused one, usually left behind by a sea snail like a Winkle or Whelk. They move into the shell …
... on the future of Mull Aquarium
“The THA intends to relocate the wet displays, the wonderful touch tanks and borrowing from the sea tanks to a new building. Built for pumped water, built for gravity fed saltwater tanks and spills. To be located where the small boats are today, at the boat park. Yes, the wet display section of Aquarium that we all love and created for everyone will be closed next season, very sorry.
I state again there is no intention by THA to permanently close the Aquarium. The Aquarium retail space in the building will remain open as a centre of information and for Aquarium retail and more”.
