Oasis of fish

Oasis of fish

The Oasis of Fish offers you a glimpse underwater and allows you to see what kind of fish swim in Finnish lakes. The Oasis contains six large pools and various smaller pools and aquariums containing both freshwater fish and more tropical aquarium fish.

At the Oasis one can marvel at the fascinating underwater life while learning interesting and new facts about Finland’s traditional lake fish species. It offers school children the opportunity to see, for example, how pike and salmon differ from each other and how fish are fed.

LAKE POOLS OF THE OASIS OF FISH

Brook trout of Peukalopuro
In the Peukalopuro pool you get to watch brook trout that also live in the park’s Peukalopuro stream. Brook trout is not a native species to Finland, but it made the Peukalopuro stream its home somewhere around the 1950s and decided to stay permanently in this clear and flowing brook.

Pool of small fish
The pool of small fish contains the same swimmers as the other tanks, only in a smaller size. This ensures that the smaller fish are safe from their larger fellow creatures. In this pool you might spot a small pike, for example.

Pool of predatory fish
The pool of predatory fish is the largest of the six lake pools. Here one gets to see the predatory fish of Finnish lakes – pikeperch, perch, pike and burbot. The pool also contains roaches and crucians for the predators to feed on.

Rainbow trout of Kappelilampi
Rainbow trout swim in the Kappelilampi pool, just as they do in the Kappelilampi pond itself. In the fishing village you get to fish for rainbow trout from the pond yourself (ON HIATUS FOR THE SUMMER 2020)

Trout of the rapids pool
It is trout that zoom around in the rapids pool. There are large rocks on the bottom of the pool, which is designed to resemble rapids or a river.

Bream of the cottage shore
The cottage pool is a comfortable place for bream. The pool itself is like a cottage shore, with a pier and all.

DID YOU KNOW THAT THE COLOURING OF PIKE DEPENDS ON THE COLOUR OF THE WATER?

There are six different colour variation in pike. The striping and colouring of pike change depending on whether it swims in murky or clear waters.
