A new way to watch the DNR fish pond: Live on the webby Cathy Wurzer, Minnesota Public Radio
St. Paul, Minn. — One of the most popular attractions at the State Fair every year is the Department of Natural Resources fish pond. Visitors pack the perimeter of the pond and peer into the water to see 30 to 40 different species of fish.
This year there's a new way to see the fish in the pond and you don't even have to go to the Fair. A video camera has been installed underwater in the fish pond and the images are being streamed live on the DNR website.
Cathy Wurzer talked to Donn Schrader, a Fisheries Specialist with the Minnesota DNR who's been in charge of the State Fair fish pond since 1988.
