During the 2016 remodel, a separate space was created for raising freshwater fish and shrimp. We also used this opportunity to utilize a grant to purchase a new automated system for nearly $5,500. This system has increased the efficiency of our production and reduce labor time needed to maintain it. There is also a space for a vertical hydroponics tower in this room. The fisheries room is connected to the Animal Learning Center but is on a separate ventilation system.
