The brief from Sea Life Sunshine Coast was that they needed to be able to relocate 2000 sea animals, including a 3 metre grey nurse shark following the closure of the Sea Life sanctuary at Manly in Sydney.
To do the 12-hour transfer of these sea creatures meant that they required a custom-built truck to be specifically designed for this task.
Moving the sharks was going to be a complex and huge operation as only one shark could be moved at a time on the road.
Working with Advanced Aquarium Technologies in Queensland, Technolab supplied and installed the OxyGuard Pacific system, which was the perfect product to be fitted to the tank on the transport truck.
The OxyGuard Pacific looks after the water quality parameters on the truck, measuring the dissolved oxygen, temperature, and pH.
After successfully moving all of the 2000+ shark and sea animals to their new enclosures on the Sunshine Coast it is great to hear that all of the animals are thriving in their new home. The Sea Life Sunshine Coast facility is one of the few aquariums in the world to successfully breed Grey Nurse sharks, so we are thrilled to have been part of this project.
Our thanks to Advanced Aquarium Technologies who designed and manufactured the mobile aquarium which our equipment was housed in.
