As large and populous as India is, you may be surprised to learn India currently has no public aquariums. Singapore-based private equity firm Andover plans to change all that by building at least seven public aquariums across the country.
India plans to build 7 new public aquariums

India making big waves with seven new aquariums.

The first aquarium is currently under construction at Greater Noida and is slated for completion by the end of 2012.  The new aquarium is named The Blue Planet; If the name rings a bell, it's because several aquariums including the upcoming Danish masterpiece also goes by the same name.  The Blue Planet at Greater Noida will be India's first state-of-the-art public aquarium.

Andover does not plan to stop there and is exploring multiple sites to build at least six more public aquariums over the next five years.
