Really interesting although I was slightly concerned that some of the larger fish were in very small tanks for their size, I am sure this is monitored though. Great to see that there are still so many types of local fish in our seas.

Quaint little village aquarium with very knowledgable staff. It's small but was very enjoyable and the entry price lets you back in all day. The touch pool was a hit where you can pick up crabs and prawns.
