A new £300,000 exhibition at Great Yarmouth's Sealife Centre is to be officially opened tomorrow.
Under the Ray-Dar, which has a centrepiece display of a yellow submarine, celebrates how Norfolk's off-shore wind farms provide a haven for marine life.
One feature which spotlights native shark and ray species has been jointly sponsored by conservation charities the Sea Life Trust and the Shark Trust.
Under the Ray-Dar also employs audio-visual and touch technology to explore the habitat and its myriad of creatures, such as bearded rocklings and a Tompot Blenny.
General manager Terri Harris said: 'Under the Ray-Dar is one of the biggest new attractions we've unveiled for many years, and perhaps the most closely focused on conservation and looking after our marine environment.'
'Another part of it features a map of the UK showing the location of all our sister Sea Life centres around the country, and detailing the unique contributions that each one of them makes to helping safeguard our seas and their inhabitants for the future,' she added.
It is being officially opened at 6pm at an invite only event.
