The aquarium of the Netherlands Institute of Sea Research on Texel is described. A hall of 450m² and an outdoor area of 8000 m² offer facilities for ad hoc construction on experimental apparatus. The hall can be used with natural or artificial homogeneous lighting. Ten identical sea water circuits are available comprising storage tanks, pumps, gravity tanks and rapid open sand filters with ample possibilities to connect or interchange components of different circuits. Further systems present provide the sea water for the field area and can do so for a 700m³ roofed circular basin, not built yet. Sea water is taken in from the Wadden Sea or brought by tanker from the North Sea.
