Following temporary measures of the National Coordination Body for Communicable Diseases of Montenegro, as a response to the risk of import or spread of an infectious disease caused by the novel coronavirus, Project management requested such extension, considering announced pandemic as force majeure,  and accommodated a final of the project, mainly with postponing the assembling of the aquarium for mid-June 2020.

The extension of the project for 4 months, till 30 September 2020, will enable aquarium assembling, hydraulic check, the population of tanks with planned organisms, finishing the reconstruction of the space, and public opening of the Aquarium.
