The International Game Fish Association Fishing Hall of Fame and Museum opened January 15, 1999. This interactive educational/recreational experience is the definitive home of fishing. The John Morris Wetlands Area is a created collage of wetland ecosystems including freshwater swamp & freshwater marsh, salt marsh and mangrove habitats. Ekistics Design Studio, Inc. was principally responsible for the master plan for the habitats and interactive boardwalk experience, collaborating with the architect and exhibit consultants. The facility includes a unique saltwater circulatory system able to mimic natural tidal fluctuations. Ekistics prepared detailed site engineering documents and assisted in construction review.
