This aquarium is located on the banks of the Saône in a discreet new structure. After a visit to the temperate fresh waters (impressive catfish), it is the shark tank that attracts visitors. The smaller but more colourful natives of Africa's lakes and tropical seas are a delightful show. The visit ends with the five senses room and tactile pool.
