The aquarium will be comprised of 4 different ecological zones; the ‘Rainforest, the ‘Ocean Trench’, the ‘Jellyfish’ (Boom Room) and the ‘Reef Zone’, which includes ‘Lab of the Future’. These are in addition to fifty other thrilling exhibits with hundreds of animals which will make the Aquarium comparable to other world class aquariums across the globe.
