Aguda Coastal Station

The Estação Litoral da Aguda (Aguda Coastal Station) is a space dedicated to local marine plants and animals, related with artisan fishing.

 The building has three sections:

  • Fishing Museum – focussing on the equipment and the traditional art of artisan fishing down over the years, memories of fishermen and the people's daily lives, including a scale model of the Aguda beach fleet in the 1980s;
  • Aquarium – has 15 tanks holding between 1,200 and 6,700 litres, inhabited by more than 1,000 individuals from 60 species that represent the aquatic life that is characteristic of Aguda beach;
  • Education and Research Department in the fields of marine ecology and biology, fish farming and fishing.

The Estação Litoral da Aguda is beside Aguda beach (Vila Nova de Gaia), about 5 minutes on foot from Aguda train stop so the use of the Oporto urban trains is recommended for this visit.
