|[Exhibition and research of deep-sea creatures at Sunshine Aquarium] Fully convey the charm of deep-sea creatures !!|
➀ Limited to the period !! Installation of a special aquarium
Due to the low habitat temperature of deep-sea organisms, the surface temperature of the seawater drops and it can only be collected in winter, when it has the least impact on deep-sea organisms. At the Sunshine Aquarium, the breeding staff will actually try to collect deep-sea creatures and display the collected creatures in a special aquarium. In addition, this time we will focus on red shrimp and install a special aquarium specializing in ecological explanations, origins of names, and their characteristics.
