Description: The Go Fish Education Center takes visitors on an educational journey...
The Go Fish Education Center takes visitors on an educational journey through Georgia's watersheds to learn about our diverse aquatic wildlife, their natural habitats and the impacts of water pollution. Beyond that, the Center serves as a great resource of fishing information for any level of angler - where to go, what to use and when. We have over 170,000 gallons of aquatic exhibits that feature fish from the mountains, piedmont, coastal plain and swamp habitats of Georgia. We also have freshwater and saltwater fishing simulators, hunting simulators and a pond where you can try out your fishing skills. We are a Georgia Department of Natural Resources Facility. Open hours are Friday and Saturday from 9 am to 5 pm and Sunday from 1 pm to 5 pm. Tuesday - Thursday we do field trips or group tours. These need to be scheduled in advance.

We were at the Ga National Fairgrounds for a horse event and decided to visit GO FISH in our spare time because it is like .5 of a mile away - it was fun! They had some big tanks with native fish and a hatchery. The hatchery wasn't operative when we were there but we could still view it. The... More

This is a hidden gem in Middle Georgia. We live about 15 miles from the center but had never visited. We had company in for the weekend and decided to check it out. It is amazing and the staff were very happy to see us. Aquariums with many local species of fish and even a few alligators. Some of the... More

A state of the art display of nature in Georgia, with an emphasis on fishing. You walk through the aquarium and see every type of fish native to Georgia..they seem as interested in staring through the glass walls as the visitor. There are many static displays of everything related to fishing. There are two boat mock-ups, one for deep sea... More

This beautiful facility is a wonderful place to take the children. We took our young granddaughters, ages 3 & 5. You tour this center at your own pace stopping and enjoying the things that suit your interest. Our children loved viewing the numerous fish in the outdoor aquariums. They were fascinated and we were also. They fished in the outdoor... More

I loved bringing my son here. You can't beat the prices. He really enjoyed fishing in the catch and release pond and we didn't have to clean any fish!

We loved this place. It is clean, very low admission fee and very informative. The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. We had a great time with all the hands on exhibits. We spent the most time fishing in the pond. We look forward going again.

Inside is a wonderful museum type exhibit of fish; outside there is a small fishing pond that you are allowed to actually fish in and at times throughout the year, take home what you catch. The kids will love exploring and learning inside as much as they will fishing in the pond.

We took our 4 year old and she had a blast. I am used to the GA aquarium which can be wall to wall people. We felt like we had this place all to ourselves on the Sunday afternoon we chose to visit on. We strolled through the outside exhibits. It was so peaceful - you could hear birds singing.... More

A great, educational experience for kids of all ages. Inside there are a few interactive displays where you can deep-sea fish or hunt; a viewing area to see the fish hatchery. Outside there are aquarium displays with different fish and a few alligators. Out in the back is a small, stocked pond for fishing (poles & bait provided). From what... More

Fabulous! fabulous ! Only open to the public on Fri,Sat, Sun Georgia sure got it right by building this educational facility. It is a clean aquarium with fish native to Georgia with lots of text next to the viewing areas. It also has a movie-target shooting range with laser(?) guns for your use as well as one for fishing.
