Zoomarine project

ZOOMARINE IN Guia is testing a new filter that uses seaweed to clean the salt water tanks used by the sea animals at the park.

The project, named Filtralgae, was developed with the cooperation of the Centro de Ciências do Mar do Algarve (CCMA), a scientific department from Algarve University dedicated to the study of the sea and marine life, and the Agência Inovação, a state controlled agency to support and finance innovative and environmentally friendly projects.

The shark tank is the only one being cleaned for the moment with the new natural filter. The monthly cost of this cleaning is around 500 euros and the park directors expect to eliminate completely this cost as soon as the Filtralgae starts to be used in its full potential.
