Kotor, Montenegro. It takes much more time, under extraordinary circumstances caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, to translate the concept of Aquarium Boka from drawings into reality. The assembling work is in progress but with significant delay. Therefore, the implementation period of the project “Center for the Protection of the Biodiversity of the Sea Boka Aquarium – MonteAqua” (Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs grant agreement number MNE-17/0004 to the University of Montenegro – the Institute of Marine Biology) is extended to December 31, 2020.
This project extension will enable aquarium final assembling, hydraulic check, and initial population of tanks with planned organisms, in line with concept design. We strive to open the Aquarium for first visitors in late December.
