Spread over 6,362 square meters in the Shinsegae owned Daejeon Expo Science Complex, the Daejeon Aquarium has been designed to be a major attraction for Daejeon. Occupying two floors, with the entrance from the ground level to the exhibit level, transiting through the aquarium.

Daejeon Aquarium’s seven different thematic zones offer an experience from rainforest to river delta to the abyssal depths. With differing environments replicated, visitors can be transported between the likes of the Amazon rainforest, Mekong Delta, Korean coast, kelp forest, & deep ocean.

A 94-meter-long underwater tunnel with panoramic views offers a fully immersive experience as visitors’ journey through the predator zone, into the kelp forest, and finally into the pelagic zone.

Featuring the world first predator tank, visitors are offered a 360° view of the world’s predator species such as trevally, snapper, yellowtail kingfish, giant grouper, bronze whaler sharks, hammerhead sharks, sunfish, tuna, mahi-mahi, pilot fish, remoras, giant barracuda, moonfish and batfish.

Daejeon Aquarium will serve as an important learning centre for the study of marine life and biology with aquaculture rehabilitation, coral reef research, and a coastal ecology development program.
