The specimens that make up our exhibition are not only living ambassadors of the huge biodiversity of the world of living creatures, but also depict inter-species, intraspecific or interrelationships between aquatic organisms and their ecological niche. In addition, students have the opportunity to observe "in vivo" many species-unique morphological features, food or reproductive behaviour.The beauty of the admired nature is also intertwined with aspects of environmental protection - it inspires to special care for the charm and diversity of nature.
Recently, we have started cooperation with scientists from the Faculty of Food Sciences and Fisheries of the West Pomeranian University of Technology in Szczecin, where a new course in Ichthyology and Aquaculture was created. Together, we started research on the reproduction and incubation of fish that are in our collections. Thanks to this type of research, it will be possible to get to know, or in fact observe, what was possible to see only in natural conditions. The results of the research will be published by scientists, and all interesting facts from life will be presented during the presentation in our facility - because in addition to the permanent exhibition, we also conduct regular lectures to which we invite academic lecturers.
The raging epidemic interrupted our classes for seniors as part of the University of the Third Age, we had a series of workshops for school children and people associated with the region's tourism.
In the next semester, we will host Ichthyology and Aquaculture students from the West Pomeranian University of Technology in Szczecin, as well as students from abroad under the Erasmus program.
