Aquarium hosts real life stars of top films

Have your say

VISITORS to the city aquarium are being invited to a star-studded event.

Portsmouth’s Blue Reef Aquarium is celebrating the May Bank Holiday weekend with Hollywood Star Fish.

Real life characters from Finding Nemo, Finding Dory, Shark Tale and Tarka The Otter will be shown to children.

General manager Jenna Macfarlane said: ‘This is our take on meeting the real-life celebrities of popular children’s films.

‘Most children will know lots about the animated film characters but very little about the animals they are based on.

‘This is our way to educate our visitors about the different species that feature on the big screen such as clownfish, regal tangs, jellyfish and many more.’

Visitors will be able to take a film stars tour, be shown the animals homes and learn different facts along the way.

The Hollywood Star Fish event will run from today to May 1.

The aquarium closes at 6pm with last admission at 5pm.
