New mini aquarium is teeming with local marine life

A native marine life aquarium which shows the richness of the waters off the Sussex coast can now be visited inside Worthing Coastal Office.

Rockpool Reef was created by the Councils’ Coastal Wardens - who collected water, sediment and corals for the tank, by hand.

Already, the abundance of marine life which was living inside has shown itself, including cuttlefish fry, shrimp, crab, hermit crab and small mullet fry.
