An Underwater Exhibition

Friday, April 12, 2013


Are you a fan of the marine life? Then you should not miss out on the Aqua Life 2013 exhibition, says Rhea Dhanbhoora

Interested in seeing rare, endangered and beautiful fish? Head over to Sathaye College, where they are holding an exhibition of over 100 varieties of fish in over 25 tanks. You can look forward to species that you’ve never even heard of before. Called the Aqua Life 2013, the show will also showcase 150 underwater photographs. Marine lovers can witness octopus, shark fish and other fish such as eel, bangii cardinals, foxface, bubble fish and chestnut catfish. There will also be a contest that you can participate in.

Laukik Soman of Laukik Creations, the organiser of Aqua Life 2013, says, “The exhibition is a unique initiative to inculcate awareness and interest in children about marine life by holding contests where children will get to win beautiful aquariums worth `5,000. All they have to do is guess the name of the species in one of the 20 tanks.”

Unlike most exhibitions, which are dominated with fish from sweet water, Aqua Life 2013 will have over 70% of fish from the sea. This year, the exhibition will also display exhibits from Taraporewala Aquarium. Parag Jain Nanotiya, commissioner of fisheries, says, “Taraporewala Aquarium is associating with this exhibition, which is a great initiative to educate people about marine life.”
