Available species

All animals we have on display are available for adoption. If we have more than one individual of a certain species (e.g. our shoal of sea bass), the adoption will include the entire group.

For information about the species, please see our Meet The Critters page!

Pack contents

The packs include:

  • Adoption certificate
  • Information sheet on your chosen species
  • Complimentary visit to the Sea Zoo to the adopter plus one other person, and a chance to chat with one of our biologists about your adopted species
  • Your name on a sign next to your adopted animal's tank
