By Tom Lang, KDWP
The 2008 Kansas State Fair proved to be an outstanding event for the Mobile Aquarium (MA). Despite poor weather for much of it, in ten days at the Fair the MA had approximately 126,000 visitors, including 41,000 youths. The MA participated in the Kansas Largest Classroom program and saw many school groups during the week. KDWP biologists gave away cases upon cases of Fishing Atlases, Hunting Atlases, Fishing Regulations, Hunting Regulations, Fish Identification guides, fish trading cards, pocket angler guides and more. Biologists also performed several fishing demonstrations from the MA’s casting platform. To top it all off, the MA was also named “Grand Champion Outside Exhibitor” at it’s first Kansas State Fair event.
