Hunters of the North Sea
- with or without teeth

This winter break you get up close and personal with the hunters of the North Sea - both those with and those without teeth. 

Get closer...

The winter break at The North Sea Oceanarium offers many great experiences, when we take you on a journey through the food chain of the North Sea where the only point is to eat or be eaten!

In the new exhibition ‘Hunters of the North Sea’ you can experience everything from the smallest plankton to the largest predatory fish, sharks and whales. There are many hunting methods beneath the surface of the North Sea and most people probably think of sharks when they hear the word ‘predator’ – but they exist in a variety of shapes and sizes.

In spite of the fact that not all animals have teeth, they still hunt and eat other animals in cunning ways – some more bizarre than others….
…Did you know, that the crab’s teeth are placed all the way down its belly? Or that a starfish disgorges its stomach out of its mouth in order to eat?

In the food chain of the North Sea the most important thing is the connection between the animals and how they affect each other.

Join us in the winter break where we look at the amazing ways nature is solving the challenges of life. You can also get up close to teeth of both sharks, narwhale and walrus.
