Provides the world's most comprehensive assemblage of sport fishing information, exhibits, educational classes, fishing demonstrations, interactive displays and virtual reality fishing. Walk in to the 60,000-square-foot (5,600 m2) museum's main entrance and you are seemingly immersed in an underwater world filled with fish. There are 170 species of game fish that earned world record status suspended overhead with informational plates on date of catch, angler, place, etc., displayed on the floor under each fish. The largest mount is Alfred Dean's 2,664 lb (1,208 kg) great white shark caught in Australia in 1959. Above the main floor of the sprawling building is a 12,000-volume fishing library and historic archives. Outside is a full marina, plus a four-acre living wetlands, complete with native plant and animal life.
