Uddhav Thackeray wants world-class, multilevel aquarium in Mumbai

Thackeray on Monday ordered the state tourism department to draft a proposal to develop a multilevel aquarium in Mumbai. He issued the instruction after holding a meeting with Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation (MTDC) officials.

Thackeray said, Mumbai is an international city. Tourists will start coming to Mumbai via its international cruise terminal. Hence, as a part of it we need to have an international multilevel aquarium in the first stage.

"I have asked the officials to prepare a proposal for the project." Sea Life Bangkok Ocean World (formerly known as Siam Ocean World) is one of the largest aquariums in Southeast Asia.

Located two storeys below Siam Paragon shopping mall, it has over 30,000 marine animals from across the world. At the meeting, the chief minister reviewed major tourism projects which are under development and also those which have been proposed.
