Wild food webs and fishy feasts

munida and girl

NZMSC logoJoin a marine scientist at the NZ Marine Studies Centre at Portobello to find out about marine food webs – who eats what in the ocean. Discover how local sea creatures are adapted to catch their food, avoid predators and stay alive.


You will see microscopic plankton, investigate the stomach contents of a squid or shark and enjoy close up viewing of a variety of sea animals in our tanks and touch pools.


The Aquarium is no longer open to the general public,
 so this is a unique opportunity to see some of the marine creatures that are kept at
 the Centre for education programmes. There are three sessions to choose from (see below). Numbers are strictly limited.
