Photographer's Note

CretAquarium ”Thalassocosmos”
The premises are located within the grounds of the former American Base at Gournes, at a distance of only 15 Km from Herakleio city centre. Using the frequent intercity bus services, visitors can reach the aquarium in approximately 20 minutes.
Along the 600 m seascape of the Mediterranean, the Greek seas and tropical waters awaiting them, visitors come face to face with approximately 2.500 organisms belonging to 200 species. These are kept in 32 tanks, with a total capacity of 1.600.000 litres. The tanks alternate depending on the species, their habitats or habits. Habitats which host numerous species and large species that have need of room are kept in large tanks, while in the smaller ones, visitors will come across particular species and micro-ecosystems which, though impressive and significant, would be lost to sight in the larger tanks.
