Tokyo Sea Life Park

with one comment

It’s another day and it’s another aquarium. This time it’s much bigger and more stunning. A Japanese architect designed Tokyo Sea Life Park. The design illustrates a dive into deep sea. The surrounding in the park is designed such that the view merges with the waters of Tokyo Bay. Lets run some statistics… hehehe. Well, Japan has the most number of aquariums in the world. Out of 144 or more, larger aquariums in the world, 68 are in Japan and Tokyo Sea Life Park is the biggest in Japan. There are 542 different species of fish in the aquarium. This accounts around one fifth of the species in all aquariums in Japan. Will u believe that for this aquarium nearly 13 million US dollars is invested annually? This aquarium displays 166 tuna of 6 different species. It is the first aquarium to successfully display tuna, which is around 17 years ago. The tank is made from 26cm thick glass specially designed for aquariums and the water for this tank is brought from deep sea. In this aquarium, various filters are used which filters around 2200tonnes of water per hour. Ozone is used for killing bacteria and facilitating oxygen for the species. I was so amazed of the clarity in water in the tanks. Wow!!! And wow!! I could not take a good picture of the tuna. The tuna moved so fast and due to the thickness of the glass I was not able to take a good picture of them. Sorry folks!! But I have some amazing pictures of the rest of the aquarium, which also have penguins and some other sea birds.
