Brewery Comes to the Rescue

The staff at Falmouth Aquarium in Cornwall, UK, began worrying about its animals when temperatures rose 3°C above normal and the marine creatures were showing signs of stress. They called on St. Austell Brewery for assistance.

The aquarium's inhabitants, which include a lobster named Gary, only had a matter of time before they overheated and died according to marine biologist Chloe Kingston who works there.

However, after an emergency call to the brewery, the oddly tried-and-tested method of using beer chilling equipment to cool the tanks has worked wonders.

She said: "It's a massive relief, I was really worried when I realised our current chillers weren't coping.

"So far the fish are just looking a bit grumpy but they wouldn't be able to stand long-term exposure to these temperatures – especially with the hot spell coming up.

"What the St Austell Brewery has done is literally save our fish at the aquarium.

The brewery has finished installing the equipment, which will be a permanent donation to the aquarium. Link  -via Arbroath
