A trip to the aquarium

I havent done a whole lot of fishing lately mainly due to the weather
and other commitments.
I did however get to spend a fews days over in the west with my
girlfriend and get to visit the ''Galway Atlantiquaria'' a fantastic
aquarium with lots of the different species that are found around the coast of
Ireland two of the species I was very interested in seeing were the European
Seabass and the Ballan Wrasse both of which I really enjoy lure angling for
but never really get a chance to see them actually swimming around.
So I made a few videos of both of these and some other species that I saw
which I hope you enjoy.
The videos dont do justice to the size of the Seabass at all almost all of which
were double figure fish with the biggest almost 18lb.

The Ballan Wrasse there were up to 9lb I could see them but not get a decent shot of
them so I just made a couple of videos of those that were closer which were still good
size fish from 2lb to around 5lb one thing I noticed was just
how terrotorial they were with each fish having its own section.....

Also some cool looking Trigger Fish well over 4lb weight....

I hoped you enjoyed those few short litttle videos. If any of you are ever in the west of
Ireland with some spare time a trip to the aquarium is worth if only to see the Seabass
