Not well maintained... Not much variety of fishes you can see. Considering this is on the coastal area, i was excpecting different varities of marine life, but was disappointed... If you have kids and 30 mins to spare on the beach road, you can visit it for a change, but nothing interesting

The aquarium was near the submarine museum, so we thought we would visit it but found nothing extra ordinary about the aquarium. Few of the fishes exhibited were nice but nothing compared to international standards

Rs 30 entry fee for nothing. The aquarium was not that good it is not worth of 30 rs each. Personally I don't recommend it.
