Trawlermen depicts two commercial fishermen struggling to haul in their net. The life-size bronze statuary by Alan Strathern is appropriately adjacent to the National Aquarium of New Zealand. The Napier Aquarium opened along Marine Parade in 1976. The first floor features marine life from Hawke’s Bay. The main feature is the 78 by 99 foot Oceanarium with a 164 foot observation tunnel. On the second floor are fish and aquatic animals from other countries. Extremely popular are their close encounters. The favorite attraction is swimming with the sharks.
