Water covers over three-quarters of our globe. Despite this, we know less about the oceans and their inhabitants than we do about the Moon’s surface.
The journey to the Planeta Aqua continues on the second floor after visiting our enormous aquariums and stunning Oceanarium.
With the Barcelona Aquarium tickets, you can experience many diverse organisms that have adapted to the most different aquatic environments.
You can also see how different varieties of rays, such as freshwater stingrays and eagle rays, swim thanks to a 20,000-litre open tank.
On Planeta Aqua’s circular mezzanine floor, you may see living fossils and learn about phenomena like camouflage, symbiosis, oceanographic secrets, and environmental challenges.
Visitors can learn about the evolution of various mammals, reptiles, and fish adapted to the marine environment through computer games, information panels, small aquariums and interactive features.
Life in the cold
A newly designed enclosure that matches the natural climatic conditions of Humboldt penguin habitats allows you to watch these animals while swimming underwater.
The Tropical Universe
Planeta Aqua has also replicated the three main sections of a tropical river: the upper, middle, and lower courses.
At the mouths of these tropical rivers, we discover specific ecosystems: mangrove swamps with their maze of roots, where the young marine fish take shelter and feed.
You’ll be able to observe exotic species, including piranhas, tropical turtles, and iguanas, here.
The World Of Darkness
Planeta Aqua invites you to stroll through the immensity of the marine cosmos and discover various unique forms of existence.
Ranging from living animals such as jellyfish that drift around in places still reachable by light to others that have adapted to the extreme pressures of the deep.
This section informs you about the history of conquering and ocean knowledge and how much is left to be found.
You can discover how various oceanographic equipment functions. You can also see what a submarine’s inside looks like in the bathyscaphe.
