Each year since 1995, the Georgia Department of Natural Resources has hosted CoastFest, the largest event on the Georgia coast showcasing the natural and cultural assets and outdoor recreational opportunities of the region. The one-day event is organized and planned to be both entertaining and educational for the over 9,000 visitors, many of which are children, who typically attend the event. During 2013 and 2014, the Georgia Natural Resources Foundation funded the rental of a 5,000 gallon mobile aquarium which was filled with filtered seawater and specimens of saltwater fish found along the Georgia coast. DNR staff and volunteers interacted with visitors explaining the life history and habitat requirements of these species and providing information about the angling techniques commonly used when targeting these species.
