Tell the Norwalk Aquarium About Your Big Catch

Long Island Sound fishermen, the Norwalk Maritime Aquarium wants to hear your fishing stories and see your fishing pictures, for a new exhibit.

"As part of the new exhibit, we plan to include an area where we'll post stories, photographs and videos from the adventures that people have had while fishing on the Sound," said Judith Bacal, the Aquarium's exhibits director. "Everyone has a great fishing story and we want to hear about it! We want to hear about people's experiences with friends and family catching fish, or about the ones that got away. These are the stories that stir our emotional connections with the Sound and the animals that live in it."

... The exhibit will feature large game fish from the Sound in a 30,000-gallon tank while exploring the relationship and connections we have with fish and fishing in the Sound.

I doubt they're interested in a small bag of clams, however.
