Description

The habitat of many species that live in the waters of the Gulf of St. Lawrence has been recreated in our tanks to show the beauty and complexity of these ecosystems. Visitors can come and meet the seals at the aquarium and even touch certain specimens. Staff are on hand with lots of information to share. The permanent exhibition room offers a window on the current state of the fishing and aquaculture industry; during self-guided tours, visitors can view exclusive documentaries made especially to underscore the importance of these industries in New Brunswick. Young visitors and school children will also be very happy to find various games and information stations about the underwater world especially adapted for them in the educational playroom. The New Brunswick Aquarium and Marine Centre is a place of discovery and fun for every member of the family and is sure to please everyone.

Allow at least two hours for a full visit.
