The Aquarium is a valuable educational tool for discovering, observing and understanding marine environments.
Our primary motivation is to enable all visitors, children or adults, families or groups, to discover and appreciate the great beauty of New Caledonia's marine environments. Our expectation is that each visitor will leave us with an increased awareness of their fragility, and of the need to preserve them.
