At the Lake District Coast Aquarium, you can discover the amazing underwater world of Cumbria's seas and coasts. Set in the heart of the refurbished Maryport Harbour, the new purpose built Aquaria contains over 35 creative displays, specialising in native British aquatic life. There are fresh water displays, where you can see Trout and Perch in a large rock pool with cascading waterfalls. The display for the Solway Estuary contains Grey Mullet and Flounder. A large display recreates Maryport's harbour wall, where you can experience being 'underwater' and see fish which come in with the tide - Whiting, Dog Fish and Lobsters. There are over 2,000 specimens of local aquatic life. In the rock pool, you are allowed to make contact with some of the inhabitants, and in the ray pool, the favourite with most visitors, gentle stroking of the rays is allowed.
