(fb) On the morning of 16 December 2022, a catastrophe occurred at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Berlin: Probably due to material fatigue, the tank of the one-million-litre giant aquarium “AquaDom” collapsed.

All 1500 animals, 97 different tropical species, were washed down to the third basement level and onto the freezing street. The vast majority of the animals froze to death and suffocated. The agony can last up to two hours, while fishes feel fear and pain.

fair-fish was shocked to hear about the accident in the “AquaDom” and feels sympathy for the dead creatures. fair-fish would like to ban aquariums in public spaces—on the one hand because saltwater fishes, as those kept in the “AquaDom”, are usually caught in the wild, which leads to great damage to the ecosystem and the population; on the other hand because the animals in such show aquariums do not live in a species-appropriate manner; there is a lack of space, retreat possibilities and suitable structures.
