The Fisheries Building was designed by Henry Ives Cobb, of Chicago. It was a very popular attraction at the fair because of several massive, illuminated aquariums that housed a splendid array of exotic sea creatures. Salt water was brought in from the Atlantic Ocean, and all sorts of sea life, from king crabs to sharks, swam about the tanks.
