Øresund aquarium is small saltwater aquarium with tanks showing marine life in the region around Helsingborg. Even
if one has visited many aquaria, this collection is special, both the specimens and the arrangements, and one can learn a lot.
The building is under renovation, but only the outside and it is easy to find the entrance.
Inside the entrance is a display where children can have a very close look at what can be found on the sea bottom.
Most of the tanks are in one large room. The entrance is at the end of the corridor.
There are three larger tanks. All tanks are well kept and labeled with names and descriptions in Danish, German and English.
All the fish on display are found in the waters just outside the aquarium. This is a Greater weever, Trachinus draco.
These are Atlantic Wolf fish, Anarhichas lupus, very common in Scandinavian waters.
