About this book

Language: Japanese

This pocket book is a re-edited version of an earlier book, and introduces readers to the world of the aquarium. Beyond the aquatic creatures in their watery habitat, out of sight of visitors, is a secret world of facilities and equipment to provide the environment for the aquarium's inhabitants, staffed by zookeepers. This book gives an introduction to their day-to-day work and duties, answering questions such as: "Where do the fish come from?", "How does the aquarium get its sea water?", "What happens at the aquarium in the evenings?", and "What kind of work do animal breeders do?"
