The Auburn University School of Fisheries, Aquaculture and Aquatic Sciences will host a field day Saturday, April 6 from 9:30 AM to 2:30 PM at the E.W. Shell Fisheries Research Center on N. College St.

Free and open to the public, the day’s activities include the interactive Fisheries Learning Center, fishing, tours of the world renowned program’s facilities and ponds, food vendors, extended fish market hours, child-friendly fun, treasure hunt and presentations by faculty and students.

“The goal of the event is to bring more awareness to our research and our precious aquatic resources,” said David Cline, an Extension Aquaculturist in the School and organizer of the event. “Our program is one of the best in the world and has a global impact. We want to take advantage this opportunity to share what we do with the community and the Auburn family.”

This event will also celebrate the official grand opening of the Fisheries Learning Center, the new public face of the research station. The learning center includes engaging interactive electronic and live animal displays and educational programs for area schools, the public and visitors from around the world.
