SIMS Research aquarium provides flowthrough seawater at ambient conditions pumped directly from Sydney Harbour.
Three Controlled Environment rooms offer temperature control to an
accuracy of + 1°C and CO2 systems for PH manipulation. Our Aquatic
Containment Lab offers UV and chlorine sterilization for safe disposal of
seawater containing potential biological hazards.
A new purpose built pump house delivers up to 1.3 million litres of pristine filtered seawater to the aquarium where it is fed to the hundreds of experimental tanks in the facility. Additional mechanical filtration down to 1 micron and UV filtration is available for research where the removal of all biological material in the seawater is essential.
