A ground-breaking day at the Aquarium

Stuart Buchanan

It is oFISHial – construction has started for the new predator exhibit coming soon to the Two Oceans Aquarium!

Representatives from the V&A Waterfront joined project managers and team members involved in the construction of the new site, as well as staff from the Aquarium, for a special ground-breaking ceremony, which heralded the beginning of our latest development. Watch the short video below:

The new predator exhibit will contain 1.5-million litres of seawater and will be six metres in depth, and will be open to the public by December 2014. Check out the photos from today’s event:
