THE NATIONAL AQUARIUM ABU DHABI SET TO OPEN THIS YEAR AT AL QANA


The new aquarium, the largest in the region, will showcase over 200 sharks and rays. Finishing touches are being put on Abu Dhabi’s largest and only public aquarium, The National Aquarium. The 9,000 square metre facility will include freshwater and marine life, reptiles and amphibians, birds and mammals. The aim of the aquarium is for ‘people to reconnect with nature’ with visitors able to explore 11 geographical zones and 60 exhibits. The aquarium is based at Abu Dhabi’s wellness, dining and entertainment hub, Al Qana, located alongside the Khor Al Maqta waterway. The National Aquarium will be the only facility in the Emirates to house Scalloped Hammer Head sharks and Bull sharks, the latter widely considered one of the most dangerous shark species. The shark roster also includes Sand Tiger sharks, Lemon sharks, Zebra sharks, and Black Tip Reef sharks.
