The Deep, the aquarium based in Hull in the north of England, opened its doors to the public in March 2002 amid a blaze of publicity. It is a unique mix of stunning aquaria, state-of-the-art interactions and extraordinary film footage, which tell the story of the world’s oceans – the biggest living space on our planet. With superb photography, commissioned line drawings and text by a leading authority in marine science, this fascinating book travels from the beginning of time and into the future – from the age of the giant sea reptiles to the future of ocean research. It uncovers and investigates every sort of ocean life in existence – from coral reefs to vast tropical oceans, and from the cool northern seas to the icy polar waters.
