Equipment Type: Aquarium

The School has outstanding aquarium facilities following a recent £1.5M refurbishment. We have both freshwater and seawater tank facilities: The freshwater facility comprises three indepedent streams with 10 tanks (500L each) per stream of recirculated water which has temperature control and programmable photoperiod. The saltwater facility comprises 30 tanks (500L). All tanks have associated automatic feeders with full remote sensing and alarms.

We also have separate high biosecurity freshwater pathogen challenge facilities containing 18 tanks, and a fully independent zebrafish aquarium with an isolated set of breeding tanks (Techniplast) designed for use with GM models.

Further small aquarium rooms are also available for bespoke use for tropical species or as a designated hatchery.
