About The Lost Chambers Aquarium
The Lost Chambers has delighted guests with unusual salt and fresh water attractions and an amazing aquatic eco-system never before seen in the Middle East. The open-air marine habitat is the focal point of Atlantis, Dubai’s first truly integrated entertainment destination resort. Resort guests, visitors to Dubai and residents of the Emirates can enjoy and explore an extensive collection of exhibits, pools, lagoons and underwater ruins showcasing an impressive variety of marine life including sharks, eels, rays, piranhas, hundreds of exotic and tropical fish.
Throughout the expansive 46 hectare resort, 42 million litres of salt water are home to more than 65,000 fish and sea creatures representing over 250 species. Second only to Mother Nature, this harmony of marine life is managed by a team of more than 165 full-time Marine Animal Specialists. The veterinarians, biologists, aquarists, divers, laboratory mangers, food technicians, mechanics and directors who tend to this delicate eco-system on a 24-hour basis, have over 200 years’ experience from world-renowned marine institutes and facilities.
The aquarium is attempting to boost the numbers of these species by participating in international breeding programmes and releasing native species into the Arabian Gulf. They have had much success with growth and translocation of local coral species and also a number of seahorses that were released earlier in the year.
