The spectacular Oceanarium, the only one of its kind in Europe, is the largest tank and the one with the greatest number of species in L’Aquàrium de Barcelona. With a diameter of 36 metres and 5 metres in depth, it contains 4,500 m3 of water. Such diverse species are found as giltheads, morays, ocean sunfish, rays and two kinds of sharks: the sand tiger shark (Carcharias taurus) and the sandbar shark (Carcharhinus plumbeus), the true stars of L’Aquàrium.
WARNING: an aquarium is a very delicate, constantly envolving environment. This means that during your visit you may find that one or more of the species listed in the tank happens to be missing for reasons completely beyond our control; despite our desire to ensure that visitors have the opportunity to see and learn about them all.
