The Fish Have Returned...!

Macduff Marine Aquarium has re-opened following a major refurbishment of the Kelp Tank exhibit.

Situated on Aberdeenshire’s scenic coast in the traditional fishing town of Macduff, Macduff Marine Aquarium features marine life from the Moray Firth, Scotland’s largest bay, in a variety of exciting and innovative exhibits. Visitors come face to face with hundreds of native fish and invertebrates normally only seen by SCUBA divers who brave the chilly waters of the North Sea.

The kelp tank is the main deep central exhibit, which displays a living kelp reef as seen in the Moray Firth and was fully refurbished to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the aquarium. This exhibit is the only one of its kind in Britain and divers hand feed the fish on a regular basis.

Macduff Marine Aquarium aims to promote awareness, enjoyment and stewardship of the Moray Firth marine environment in an entertaining and educational way.
