Around 800,000 people visit La Rochelle Aquarium each year, a seawater aquarium in La Rochelle, France.
It's open daily, and at least two hours are recommended to see everything, including the 600 different species housed in over 70 aquaria. The different tanks are geographically themed, including a Pacific room, Caribbean and Mediterranean room, and there is also a tropical greenhouse and jellyfish area.
One of the highlights is the 1.5 million liter sharks area, which is home to several shark species.
The aquarium also focuses on the care and monitoring of sea turtles, and hosts exhibitions and lectures in the amphitheater aquarium.Places nearby:
