"KALALA" LAKE MUSEUM

Lake Museum is situated on the east shore of the lake, in the former aquarium building of the Estonian University of Life Sciences, Limnological Centre. Building was renovated during 2005-2006 with the help of EU programme.

Main goal of the centre is to provide training possibilities, advice and information to interested regional groups, visitors, and possible inves-tors/entrepreneurs from outside. Being also an educational institution, the accent is put on themes related to lakes and their surroundings such as living organisms, water quality, overall status, perspectives of improving the status of lakes and  training of  people in environmentally friendly behaviour. Special attention will be paid to active practical learning about the lake and its inhabitants.

A main focus of the Visitor Centre is information about fishery and fish species living in the lake now and in former eras of earth history. In the aquariums of the lake museum with a total volume of 10 m3 over 20 fish species are presented such as Eel, Pike, Bream, White bream, Roach, Pikeperch, Perch etc. Specially designed river aquariums mainly exhibit fish species living in rivers and brooks, like dace, riffle minnow and brook lamprey.
