Since I was a kid Taraporewala Aquarium has been the sole aquarium in this city. It is worth a visit to get an idea of the sea world around the Arabian and Indian ocean. There are 100 species of marine and fresh water fish including seven types of coral fish from the Lakshadweep Islands. Attractions include sharks, turtles, rays, moray eels, sea turtles, small starfish and stingrays. Exhibits offer a glimpse of the variety of marine life in the Arabian Sea and Indian Ocean. There is also a room with fossils and preserved fish in bottles, along with rare sea shells.
