to dive in
Whether you prefer to watch from the safety of dry land or to be thrown in at the deep end in a wet suit, the Kattegatcenter offers an ocean of experiences that will leave a lasting impression!
Our goal is for you to be as smitten by the sea as we are. Our talented staff will dive right in and with humour and warmth tell you a bucket load of stories about the ocean and its many exciting animals and plants.
We have created plenty of exciting, educational and entertaining experiences, which will teach you all about life in the ocean because we believe that when you know more about the oceans, you will take better care of them. Our knowledge and facilities are available for businesses, education and research facilities to use, so that together, we can ensure the future of the oceans and develop their potential.
We don’t just talk about saving animals and sustainable exploitation of the oceans. Since 2008, we have developed specific breeding programs for several of our tropical and Danish fishes. The aim is to be able to supply ourselves with fish, so that we have to collect as little as possible from the wild.
We work with public aquaria and zoos around the world via our memberships of DAZA (Danish Association of Zoos and Aquaria) and the world’s largest zoo and aquaria organisation, EAZA (European Association of Zoos and Aquaria). These memberships are very important for our breeding programs and for exchanging animals.
