Sea change: the underwater restaurant with a new approach to marine research
An underwater restaurant in southern Norway is both a tourist attraction and a living laboratory for local marine researchers
Sunlight is filtering through the turquoise waters, shimmering with the waves. Jellyfish float in graceful downwards zigzags like translucent baubles. Darting from left to right among clumps of swaying kelp are fishes speckled with bronze and streaked with silver.
This isn’t a scene from the tropics – it’s southern Norway, and it’s the view from a recently opened underwater restaurant, Under, that’s finding a new way to educate people on the importance of local marine life.
