The Meeresmuseum Stralsund on YouTube

In November 2020 the Meeresmuseum in Stralsund, Germany will close for extensive refurbishment. FutureFish is involved in the conception and rebuilding of the filter technology for the aquaria.

To shorten the time until it will re-open, the Museum has launched a series of very interesting short videos.

The MEERESMUSEUM in the old town of Stralsund was opened more than 60 years ago. In 2020 it closed for extensive modernisations: among others a redesigned entry foyer and new room-high vitrines with life-sized installations of marine animals in the exhibition halls of the former Katharinen Monastery. The centre piece will be a new impressive aquarium showing a 10m high reef. All aquaria in the historic monastery vaults will be replaced by new tanks and technically updated to the latest standards. 

FutureFish is planning the new filter and water treatment facilities for all aquaria, ranging from 100 to 600.000 litres capacities and will supervise and conduct the installation until the re-opening planned for spring 2023.

Helgoland Aquarium

New Bluehouse Building (Visualisation: Studio KLV)
New Aquarium (Graphic: Studio KLV)

In 2015 the Helgoland Aquarium had to close, because the basic structure of the building had been so affected by the saltwater that the steel construction was not safe anymore. Due to economic reason a new building is planned on the original site and with the original layout. The new building with its exhibition rooms and integrated aquaria will take up features of the original building.

The innovative and interactive exhibition in the new building will show the history of the island Helgoland, its marine ecosystem and some of the research topics of the AWI in this field. One of the main attractions will be a large show aquarium holding about 85.000l water, showing the typical habitat of the island foundation of Helgoland. There will also be some smaller aquaria as well as a jellyfish carousel. FutureFish is planning the treatment and distribution of the saltwater within the buildings as well as the filter systems for the aquaria. As a special feature the aquaria can be operated with untreated North Sea water to replicate the natural habitat.
