AUSTIN - The first public aquarium in the area is on schedule to open by December in Northwest Austin. The 24,000-sf aquarium is located inside part of the former Lack’s Furniture store at 13530 Research Blvd.

The aquarium will feature 10,000 animals in 35 exhibits that are designed to educate visitors about the oceans and rain forests and the wildlife that inhabit them.

Many of the exhibits at the aquarium will be interactive, featuring animals such as stingrays, sharks, jellyfish, tropical fish, sea turtles, sea horses, snakes, iguanas and a kinkajou.

The aquarium has hired 15 employees with plans to hire another 40 in November.
