Public aquaria: living showcases of education, conservation and research

The design, realization and maintenance of a public aquarium are very specific expertises. With many years of experience in the field of public aquaria, Blue Linked is familiar with all aspects needed to complete the job. For the design of exhibits and life support systems, as well as husbandry and the culture of marine organisms, we are a solid partner.


We consider a public aquarium as more than an educational pleasure-trip for the family. In potential, public aquaria are perfect platforms where different organizations from the public domain can meet on neutral grounds. Parties which normally hardly mix, such as fisheries and nature conservation organizations, can both bring forward their message in a public aquarium. It is our experience that therefore they often come closer to each other in an unforseen way.


Thanks to their high appreciation by a wide audience, public aquaria are very successful in their outreach about various subjects. Therefore, we preferrably search for projects in collaboration with for example the government, businesses, nature conservation organizations or universities.
