The Blobfish Are Coming!
In 2013 the previously little known blobfish became an internet sensation after it was cruelly voted the World’s Ugliest Animal. Suddenly the blobfish was everywhere. But despite its online celebrity, its deep sea habitat means that very few people outside of the marine biology community have ever seen one in the (gelatinous) flesh.
Next summer we are proud to be opening the world’s first pop-up aquarium in the heart of East London. Over the past 18 months we have been working with some of the world’s top marine biologist to understand how we can safely transport and comfortably home these deep sea dwellers. And the hard work has finally paid off. We have secured our perfect venue (not easy when you need to recreate a deep ocean environment!) and work on ‘the tank’ has begun in earnest.
We currently have three Blobfish all packed and ready for their London holiday – Barry, Lorcan and Lady Swift.
There will be no ballot for the Blobfish Café -everyone will be welcome! Just keep your ears open for our launch in Summer 2017.
