Lofoten Aquarium

Lofotakvariet, Kabelvåg Lofotakvariet, Kabelvåg

At the Lofoten Aquarium you can learn about the Lofoten cod, also known as skrei: The east Atlantic cod which every winter migrate from the Barents Sea to Lofoten to spawn.

Skrei is the foundation for the Lofoten fishery and has for centuries been one of the most important fishes in Europe. Check out our skrei aquarium, as well as aquariums containing most other species of fish, crustaceans and marine animals found in the waters around Lofoten.

You may also enjoy the exhibition “The Art of Co-existence”, with information on fisheries, aquaculture, oil and gas activities in Norway. The Lofoten Aquarium is an information centre for Norwegian aquaculture and there are separate display cages with salmon in the sea, where the fish can be observed up close.

One of the highlights of your visit will be the feeding time for the seals and otters in their outdoor pools, and the Lofoten Aquarium additionally features photo exhibitions and films, a souvenir shop, and a cafe where you can enjoy a cup of coffee and excellent views.

The Lofoten Aquarium is a part of the SKREI Experience Center and lies within close walking distance from the Lofoten Museum and the Gallery Espolin.
