World-Class Aquarium to Open in Kandawgyi in April 2018

An aquarium of international standard is set to open in Kandawgyi in Yangon next April, according to U Phyo Min Thein, chief minister of Yangon Region.

“Arrangements are being made to open an aquarium of international standard at Kandawgyi in April 2018,” he said.

Fish breeding, prawn breeding and fish-keeping will be taught at a professional level, as in vocational schools, he added.

“Yangon regional government is trying to teach these techniques at the aquarium,” he said.

The tender for the construction of the aquarium was announced in 2013, which Myanmar Aquarium Company won. Construction began in 2014 and was carried out by Surbana, a Singapore-based international consultant company.

Savannah announced that it wished to turn the 20,000-metre-square aquarium into a special attraction for foreigners.

The aquarium is being built in the freshwater aquarium compound in Kandawgyi Park, in cooperation with Yangon City Development Committee’s Parks and Stadiums Department and the Fisheries and Livestock Department in Kandawgyi.

The freshwater aquarium is currently under construction in Kandawgyi Education Zone. Once completed, it will display living alligators, crocodiles, newts, salamanders, freshwater turtles, land tortoises, freshwater fishes from both Myanmar and abroad.

Fish tanks, protection plots for mangrove’s ecosystem and sea turtles will also be displayed.

Once the two-storey international aquarium is completed, species from Kachin State, Ayeyarwady Region, and the delta – including rare species and foreign freshwater fish – will be exhibited.
