Sharky pumping millions into new Broome acquarium

Written on the 6 April 2017

A businessman is pumping millions of dollars into constructing a purpose-built aquarium wonderland in Broome modelled on local waters.

The venture has been welcomed by Australia's North West Tourism and Shire of Broome president Ron Johnston as a valuable addition to the community and tourism.

Aqua Broome Submerse Yourself is designed to revive the old Manbana Aquaculture Hatchery and Discovery Centre behind the fuel tanks and near the wharf into a must-see attraction.

The project is the brainchild of Mark "Sharky" Harris and boasts several tanks the size of rooms and a number of smaller versions that will illustrate where different fish live, from Roebuck Bay to mangrove-infested creek systems.
