Acquarium of Elba

Marina di Campo
Traversa di Via Segagnana

The Elba acquarium is a completely private structure, built and operated on a small island, without ever seeking or using public funds. It cannot be compared to the great acquariums realized or renovated in recent years by large corporations or public authorities: however, it is considered one of the most complete existing mediterranean aquariums

Arranged on a fully covered exhibition area of about 1000 meters square , open in all weathers, are over 80 tanks , fed by 250,000 liters of sea water : realized in a traditional way in an original alternation of shapes and sizes, they have been prepared with natural and artificial materials trying to reproduce the most closely as possible the habitat typical of the different organisms. The variety of species it houses, provides a unique overview of the incredible biodiversity of the waters of the ' Elba and' Tuscan Archipelago The excitement of venturing to the discovery of a biological richness that has little to envy to the tropical seas. They are in fact more than 150 the different species of Mediterranean marine organisms usually present in Aquarius, all collected in a totally ethical , recovering just among the "waste" of professional fishing, fish and invertebrates destined for the pot or at least to certain death. We will meet and get to know up close almost all the major coastal species of fish , as well as several pelagic species and some depth; and then Crustaceans , from lobsters to the most disparate and curious variety of shrimp, crabs and cicadas; Clams , from Octopus - is in our aquarium which had its first "home" the now legendary "Octopus Paul", the soothsayer became famous during the World Cup of 2010 - the Triton, the largest "snail" existing in our seas. And then a large number of varieties of sea urchins and starfish, gorgonians, bryozoans, sea cucumbers, sea squirts .

The Aquarium of Elba is also consistently been committed to conservation and environmental education and working with the Forest Service, the Port Authority and environmental groups for the recovery and protection of sea turtles , often found in the tanks after catch accidental or strandings. Specimens in difficulty are cared for, rehabilitated and usually freed after a period of convalescence. When it is not possible to release them, as in the case of an elderly turtle Caretta caretta almost blind, animals are welcome guests to swim undisturbed in large tanks of Aquarius.

Even in an aquarium dedicated to the Mediterranean can not miss the Lords of the Sea: Sharks. Three species housed in the large circular tank dedicated to them, chosen from among the quietest and especially adaptable to permanence in captivity: the great and placid Nurse Shark, the sinuous white reef shark fin, the mimetic Shark spotted carpet. Watching and reading the cards dedicated to them, we learn to know their habits and find out how little they are dangerous for us ... and how much, unfortunately, it is dangerous for them the man ...
