The large 2,000 tonne boat in the energy park is another experience area where you can learn about both traditional fishing and the state of the art of this profession.

Step into the boat, take the helm in a 4-D simulation that effectively steers your boat through the rough waters of the South Pacific in search of tuna, and then as you exit the wheelhouse, you find yourself in a recreation of a small warehouse showing the process of freezing and preserving tuna. You can see in detail all the steps involved in packing tuna in cans.

A 1 metre long tuna adds a touch of realism to the presentation. Models of traditional and modern fishing methods are on display, and it is very interesting to see the evolution of both methods.
