This review submitted by NIELS JOHS LEGARTH IVERSEN,
September 2000

The Fisheries and Maritime museum/ Salt-water Aquarium / Sealarium is a three-in-one institution placed in the northern end of Esbjerg, a renowned fishing and ferry harbour in West Jutland. Compared to The North Sea Center in Hirtshals or the Kattegat Centre of Grenaa this place is more museumlike, with fine exhibitions showing the life of the fishers and the history of Danish fishery in general. The sealarium is also well known, with common seals and grey seals swimming around in large tanks to the amusement of adults and children alike. These seals sometimes are found wounded or sick on some beach, and then they are brought here for recovery (however the staff takes pains to explain to people that they should NOT bring in young seals just because they are lying alone on some beach; their mums generally are out at sea to catch fish, and they will almost always return in due time to feed their offspring). The aquarium section comprises 25 tanks, and as might be expected it specializes in the marine life of the North Sea (or the Western Sea, as the Danes quite logically call it). You will find all the well known species: cod, coalfish, flatfish of diverse species, sharks and so on, plus some species you might not have expected. But don't expect something spectacular here.
