Sharks have lived in our oceans for more than 420 million years! That’s long before dinosaurs first walked the earth. Their brains have evolved to become more intelligent and devoted to their senses – mainly their ability to smell.
There are over 500 species of sharks in our oceans and you'll meet lots of them while you explore SEA LIFE Roma Aquarium.
You could come face-to-face with a nurse shark or a black tip reef shark! The SEA LIFE Trust is actively working with the Shark Trust to campaign against unsustainable shark fishing in EU waters. We are also proud to be coordinating the European black tip reef shark breeding programme.
