If you missed your chance to visit the Aquarium Expo 2019 in the Hagfors Center this year, you can catch the highlights reel here! The Hagfors Center was packed with more than 1000 people on Saturday, March 23. Attendees of this free event enjoyed creative displays of more than 100 aquaria, presentations from local experts, live demonstrations, and a marketplace.
The Augsburg University Biology Department offered a behind-the-scenes tour of the Hagfors Center to small groups. Professor Bill Capman led the tours showcasing the design and function of the state-of-the-art coral reef/marine aquaria he maintains in the lab. Capman also highlighted the up-and-coming marine breeding lab he is currently setting up. Capman shared his thoughts after the event:
“It really seemed like our visitors were enjoying themselves and were impressed by what they were seeing and experiencing, and by the quality of our facilities. It is one thing to do a lot of publicity and draw people in, but it is another thing to have them actually be happy that they came.” – Bill Capman, Associate Professor of Biology
