Alicante City's aquarium closes after fault kills 130 fish

AROUND 130 fish have died in Alicante City’s popular outdoor aquarium.

According to a report submitted to the town hall by the company responsible for the maintenance of the aquarium in Plaza Nueva, failures arose in five of the eight cooling engines, which led to a considerable increase in water temperature. It is believed this excessive heat triggered a virulent pathogen that caused the death of the animals.

The aquarium, which first opened in 1996 and had various species of fish, loved by visitors and residents alike, is likely to remain closed for several weeks as the company says the faulty cooling engines must be replaced and new ones are not available until September.
