Sea World Prague
Dear ZOO Sea World friends,
Sea World was founded eight years ago, in 2002. At that time sea aquarium maintenance was not so widespread, we opened exposure only with small aquariums, the largest of which had a volume of 7,000 litres of seawater. Initially we didn’t expect that there to be such big interest in our exhibition and we didn’t think that we would be able to integrate into the family of zoos in the future. Major interest in our exhibition by our visitors’ convinced us that it makes sense to expand the number of the farmed species and build new reservoirs. Gradually, with our increasing knowledge and experience, we realised the construction of larger reservoirs. Currently our largest reservoir, which is inhabited by sharks, has a volume of 100,000 litres of seawater.
We're not only trying to expand the farmed species, great emphasis is also on improving the existing welfare for farmed species. We are trying to make their environment as close as possible to their natural living conditions. Therefore, using special lights over their aquariums we the simulate moonlight, then using an ingenious technique we also simulate the tide. We try to establish the most powerful kinds of biological - mechanical filtration. Of course there is continuous enlarging of the reservoirs according to the increasing amount of the animals.
