Long Description:
"The open sea" aquarium
North Sea aquarium with the large shoals of fish and the special and famous sunfish. Fish shoals need a lot of space, and that is why the Oceanarium is shaped like an ellipse on 22 x 33 metres. It contains 4,5 mill. litres of sea water, and this makes it Northern Europe’s largest akvarium.

The North Sea Oceanarium
The North Sea Oceanarium is a state-recognised zoo with an annual subsidy from the Danish Ministry of Culture. However, over 90 percent of operating and maintenance costs are covered by entrance charges. The attraction is a not-for-profit enterprise and any surpluses go to developing the attraction.

North Sea Oceanarium is based in the North Sea Science Park. Both are independent businesses, both economically and legally, but they share their administration and have a joint director.
