The Aquarium is housed in a building full of history, namely the cod dry and the first whale oil extraction station. Promoting knowledge about the Azorean’s sea biodiversity, along with environmental awareness and recovery of sensitive marine animals, are the main tasks that the Faial Natural Park carries out on this unit.
