In more than 30 tanks with a capacity of between 200 and 11.000 liters the most common fish species and invertebrates are shown. A special attraction is the circular basin populated by a shoal of herring. Some tropical basins with fishes and crabs of the coral seas present a colourful contrast to the fauna of the cold seas. Finally, freshwater basins with characteristic fish species of the lakes in Holstein complete the presentation of the regional underwater world. In front of the aquarium there is an open-air seal basin.
