Life Fish Station - Porto Pim Aquarium reviews
Well worth a visit, working aquarium that supplies fish to aquaria all over the world, not big but very interesting more »
Just by the way we were greeted by the staff of the aquarium I knew that were were going to see fish and ocean inhabitants who were interesting. This is not like some aquariums you might visit but is.... more »
Supposedly it is a public aquarium but in practice it is a collection holding tanks for a private company that supplies fishes from Portuguese waters to public aquariums around the world. The species present depend on the orders the private company receives and the aquariums are mostly bare tanks as it is temporary. The one highlight is that they do some wildlife rehabilitation work, mostly with sea turtles.
Terrible terrible service. It closes at 5 pm and the lady did not want to let us in at 4:50 even though we had purchased tickets before. She was very rude but eventually let us in. DO NOT VISIT THIS PLACE. It's a waste of money. There are barely any fish to see and the place is just awful. Avoid going here because there is nothing to see, typical tourist trap.
