Feeding Times

With each new visit to L’Aquàrium de Barcelona, our protagonists – sharks, rays, penguins, etc. – will amaze you from the bottom of the sea.

Did you know that L’Aquàrium de Barcelona is the largest Mediterranean-themed aquarium in the world. Or that it contains 6 million litres of water in which almost 11,000 organisms from 450 different species live in harmony? Did you know that over 150 different types of meal are prepared for its inhabitants?

Come along and don’t miss out on feeding time! If its lunch time during your visit, you could be in for a pleasant surprise… If you’d like to see how the sharks are fed by our scuba divers, check out the feeding times below.

Shark food

Have you ever wondered how sharks are fed? In the Oceanarium, L’Aquàrium de Barcelona’s largest aquarium, you can get a close look at how these elegant predators are fed by the divers. The divers feed the sharks with the help of rods onto which is impaled their favourite food, such as oily fish and squid.
Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 12:00 pm. (except holidays)*

The greediest of them all – the penguins!

You can watch how they are fed in the Planeta Aqua Room twice a day every day of the week.
Everyday at 11:30 am and 4:30 pm. *


The rays don’t want to go without their food either. As soon as they see their keepers, they move in to eat. Be careful you don’t get splashed though!
Every day at 2:00 pm. except Sunday*

Eagle rays and Morays

Monday to Friday at 12:45h at the Oceanarium’s tunnel. An amazing show! *

*PLEASE NOTE: An aquarium is a highly delicate and constantly evolving environment, which means that feeding times can be altered in accordance with the needs of the marine animals and their welfare.
