The biologist Marcelo Szpilman is in charge of the project’s conception, direction and technical responsibility. The biggest attraction is the Recinto Oceânico (Oceanic Enclosure), with 3,5 million liters of water and seven meters of depth, where the public can cross the tank through an undersea tunnel, as well as live the experience of swimming with fishes, rays and the feared sharks. The touch tanks offer an unique opportunity to get even closer to the aquatic animals and touch the rays and sharks. The other enclosures house species such as the doctor fish, grouper, whiting, catshark, scorpion fish, bamboo shark, moray eels, whitetip reef shark, among others.
