Map of the Roquetas de Mar Aquarium
- The first area is the birth of water, the rivers. In this area there are freshwater fish, in a representation of what would be the Amazon river, where species such as piranhas and other fish from Brazil, Peru and Colombia stand out.
- The second zone is the tropical sea. In this recreation of a coral reef we can observe the fish with the most colorful colors of the Aquarium, like the clownfish.
- The third area is the oceans. This room has the largest volume tank of the aquarium, with 1,000,000 liters of water, and also the largest fish, such as sharks, which can be seen from all angles through a semi-tunnel gallery that Immerse in the fish tank.
