The Zoological Society of Trinidad and Tobago was incorporated by Ordinance No.12 of 1952 dated April 3rd, 1952, and the Zoo opened to the public for the first time on November 8th, 1952, exhibiting a modest collection of local animals drawn from private collections and interested members of the newly founded society.
The Aquarium displays mainly fresh-water fishes. Trinidad has approximately 75 species of
fresh-water fish. These include those that live strictly in fresh water and those that move
between fresh water and brackish water. Most of the fresh-water fishes are virtually unknown
to the general public, who are usually more interested in the pretty fishes of the coral
reefs and exotic pet trade.
