Ocean Park Aquarium – Shark Bay, Water Clarity issues
Located in Shark Bay, Western Australia, is an exciting ecotourism venture that gives visitors the opportunity to see and learn about the wonders of the marine environment, but wanted to have good water clarity, that’s where Hydrosmart came in to help. The Hydrosmart solution, has helped maintain good water clarity, to have a clear view of the sharks, through the whole water column.
The Park is a popular tourism attraction as well as a recognised conservation and marine research facility. We welcome approximately 48,000 visitors each year to an aquarium experience like no other!
Customers explore the wonders of the Shark Bay Marine Park with a marine scientist by their side, discovering endangered sea turtles, highly venomous sea snakes, stone-fish and more! We show visitors the secret lives of clown-fish, stingrays and experience the raw fury of shark feeding up close and personal, all within a one hour tour.
“We contacted Hydrosmart four years ago to help control algae in our 3 million litre shark lagoon. Micro-Algae would build up in the lagoon so much that viewing of the sharks became almost impossible. Paul recommended an installation that would not be intrusive to the public eye, aiming to alter the ecology of the pond.”
“We saw improvements in water clarity within weeks and an increase in macro algae development which has helped maintain clear water all year round, something which we have not been able to achieve since the initial development of the pond in 1999.”
“We have since ordered more units to clear all the other display aquariums.”
