Worth a visit

It's not strictly a tourist attraction rather a research centre which the public are allowed to visit. Huge lake with lots of aeration and netted tanks. Smaller tanks in a covered area with lots of fish. Interesting and worth a visit.

Worth the trip
Aug 2018 • Family
If you are actively interested in marine life and approach this place for what it is - a government research facility open to the public - you are more likely to appreciate it than if you treat it as a free aquarium. There are some slightly murky outdoor pools in which we saw turtles and trigger fish as well as a series of indoor tanks and pools containing everything from a moray eel to a number of varieties of clownfish. We spent about 45 minutes there. The round trip taxi fare from our hotel in Ao Nang was 1000 baht including having the taxi wait for us at the Center.

an overlooked attraction
Jan 2018
Unfortunately we did not meet anyone who could tell us about the place.

We went around and saw the fish they have to work with.
Clearly, the place needs to get resources.

The place certainly has an important point towards our sea fish. Therefore 5 stars

For research, not an attraction
Jun 2017 • Family
This was set up by the government to research and breed fish. Over the years as visitors started to look for attractions other than beaches and rock climbing, this morphed into an attraction which was not the original intention. This place does not have many types of crowd - pleasing aquatic life. The few types you see are in murky aquariums and pools and the place has an dowdy feel. We were in and out in ten minutes.

We had a tuk tuk for a morning and this was one of the places that we visited . There were plenty of fish to see .There was a nice walkway round the water so you could see what was being done .It was a nice and clean place well kept and breading of all kinds of the fish .There were lots of school children there, it was nice to see .

Amazing hidden gem with lots of interesting fish and marine life to see!

We went there after reading up on places for children. It is free to enter and it is a research and hatchery institute rather than a touristy destination. There are fish tanks with so many kind of clown fish and other larger tanks with small fish in the hatchery area which is under covered area. There's also a nicer display area next door to it.

However we most enjoyed the lake with walkway winding over it where you could take a stroll and watch many kind of fish swimming right under your feet. The range of fish we came across was amazing from tiny little ones to ones as long as over 1 metre. Most of them are tropical with colours. We also see a few small turtle too, they are probably leather backed.

The place looked a little rundown but we didn't mind as we love watching the fish with no tourists trying to take pictures or selfies all the time.

We took a Tuktuk ride from Aonang beach which took 15 mins. It's also free entry but there's a donation box which you can leave some money should you wish to.

Nothing really there to see

Not much here at all - some murky looking pools and dimly-lit tanks with a few fish swimming about. Stayed for 5 mins or so and then left.

we visited this center in September which is the low season there. there were hardly any service for the visitors. no guide to show us around. It was very clean and we enjoyed watching the huge fish in the pond. Needs an English speaking guide ; with some more attention and service for visitors and it will be perfect,
