The CretAquarium building is part of the “THALASSOCOSMOS” complex, the largest research, technology and entertainment centre in the Mediterranean.
Thalassocosmos covers an area of 60 hectares in the northwest shoreward section of the former American Base at Gournes, Heraklion Prefecture. It includes the Central Building (approx. 5,500 m2), which houses research facilities for marine sciences such as Oceanography, Fisheries Biology, Marine Biology and Genetics, alongside the administrative and financial services of the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research (Crete). Added to this is the Institute of Aquaculture building (approx. 3,500 m2) and CretAquarium (approx. 3.500 m2).
CretAquarium, aspires to be a unique venue for discovering, learning and promoting awareness of Mediterranean marine life. In its depths, the Mediterranean Sea hides a world little known to most people, with a wide biodiversity of species and habitats that are now under threat more than at any other historical time. As an enclosed sea featuring both steep, rocky shores plunging to great depths and indented shores with translucent waters, more than any other sea it has determined the course of human history and culture.
