Three Sharks In Gournes

Posted by yannis_s, 25 November 2005 · 2,790 views

Three sharks arrived in the Cretan Aquarium in Gournes. The sharks were transported all the way from the Marineland aquarium in southern France to Crete.

The sharks were loaded in special water tanks and the tanks were taken by truck to Angona, Italy. They travelled by ferry to Patras, then drove to Pireaus and finally, by ferry to Heraklion. The whole transportation lasted 62 hours and a biologist was with them all the time to make sure for their well-being.

The aquarium in Gournes is soon going to open its gates to the public and it is considered one of the biggest aquariums in the Mediterranean.






Thanks for the update. We will add this to our itinerary next visit.
