Acuario Oceánico is a Mexican company in Ensenada, Baja California born from the passion for aquaculture and Bluefin tuna. Our goal is to offer you an unprecedented ecotourism learning experience focused on Aquaculture, which is a series of activities, techniques and knowledge on raising aquatic plants and animal species.
We have created the most unique aquarium in America that combines entertainment, adventure, education and fun, no matter what age you are or where you’re from. This is for anyone that enjoys new adventures and has an affinity for the ocean and its species.
A very important goal of ours is to promote research related to the breeding and feeding of Bluefin tuna and other marine species. For that reason, we made a collaboration agreement with one of the most important scientific research centers in Ensenada- CICESE (Centro de Investigacion Cientifica y Estudios Superiores de Ensenada) and also found a way to collaborate with other educational institutions.
Tuna has been a flagship species of Ensenada for decades, thanks to the commercialization of this species, thousands of jobs have been created and this has generated a significant economic benefit to the region. Ensenada currently has the world’s largest Bluefin tuna farm, which exports mainly to Japan, USA, Korea and China. No small reason as to why we have chosen the Bluefin tuna as the main feature of our aquarium.
