Public Aquarium

Sadly, in order to assist with proactively preventing the spread of COVID-19, the seasonal re-opening of the Bonne Bay Marine Station’s Public Aquarium (previously scheduled for May 16th) has been postponed until further notice. For more information about Memorial's preparedness and response, visit the COVID-19 Information Hub.

Memorial University is committed to employee health, and the health of the general public. Your patience and support are appreciated during this difficult time.

Our Public Aquarium is part of the Faculty of Science at Memorial University, and is home to a wide range of the marine animals and plants that can be found in Bonne Bay, from the intertidal right down to the cold dark depths of the fjord.  When you come visit us you can take part in a tour by one of our knowledgeable interpreters, and get up-close with some of the creatures in our ever popular touch tank.
