Malta National Aquarium

The Malta National Aquarium has 51 tanks including reptiles, insects and amphibians, amongst others, Mediterranean fish, including fish commonly found in Maltese waters together with replicas of historical artefacts that one can find in the seas around the Maltese islands.

The main tank of the aquarium houses species from the Indo-Pacific Ocean, including black tip sharks, zebra sharks, leopard sharks, bamboo sharks, rays, eels and other exotic species. The main tank is approximately 12 meters in diameter and has a walk-through tunnel that allows visitors to experience the fish at a much closer range.

All tanks are expertly themed to replicate the underwater environment.

    Your pictures are great, Cherie, as it’s not easy to photograph in an aquarium. They have some interesting creatures

    The National Aquarium only opened a decade ago so I would never have seen the place with my own eyes. But would you recommend the place for my next visit?

  3. Aquariums make me hungry!
    Sushi anyone? ;)
