Help pick the final fish for Falmouth's new aquarium
The newest addition to Falmouth's high street, the Falmouth Aquarium, will open its doors next month and the owners are asking for Packet readers' help to pick the last of the fish.
Johanna Naradzay, who has helped set up the visitor attraction and education centre with her husband Barry Pope, said: “We have an extra tank and have not allocated any theme or species to it.
“We would love the community to decide what we should display so please let us know what fish we should keep, and why!”
The fish needs to be a tropical marine species and must be suitable for a 300 litre tank when it is fully grown.
All suggestions should be emailed to email@example.com by July 1.
If your suggestion is the winner, then the fish will be named after you with a name plate placed on the tank.
Falmouth Aquarium will operate as a registered charity and educational facility right at the heart of Church Street.
Over its four floors will be a “Tropical Climate” zone, offering everything from lionfish to moray eels, a “Cornwall Coastline” zone, with a five foot porpoise skeleton, cuttlefish, mullet and maerl, a “Conservation around the World” floor, focused on marine education and conservation and an “Interactive Zone,” with a display of x-ray marine photographs, a multimedia kiosk and learning space.
