CHATTANOOGA (AP) — Visitors to the Tennessee Aquarium will now get a glimpse at some of the world’s largest freshwater fish in a new exhibit called “River Giants.”
The exhibit, which opened April 28, is a collection of freshwater fish that can reach legendary sizes, like a giant pangassius catfish or a seven-foot beluga sturgeon.
Thom Demas, the aquarium’s curator of fishes, said for the first time people will be able to see a global collection of the largest freshwater species.
In addition, Zeb Hogan from the National Geographic television show “Monster Fish” will be in Chattanooga for the aquarium’s 20th anniversary. Published in The Messenger 5.9.12
