Napier’s National Aquarium of New Zealand is where you can visit Piranha – the famous omnivorous freshwater fish native to South American waters. Here, Reiss explains a little about Piranha, their teeth, feeding and their life at the National Aquarium of New Zealand.
The Ultimate Underwater Experience!
The National Aquarium of New Zealand is situated on Marine Parade in Napier and has a reef tank, a travelator which spirals its way beneath the enormous oceanarium, creating the impression of a true underwater experience, and a typical New Zealand rocky shore environment. See the marine life in Napier including sharks, stingray and hundreds of fish species, a crocodile and some kiwis on display.
The main tank is 24 metres long, 30 metres wide, and 3 metres deep and takes 1,500,067 litres of water to fill. View the 1,500 fish as they swim and feed above you as you stroll through the 50-metre long tunnel.
