I'm looking for fish suppliers and similar contacts in Destin, FL and

Savannah, GA. We're opening Bass Pro Shop stores in both areas this July

and I need to start locating fish soon. If anyone knows of reputable fish

suppliers (native gamefish) within a hundred miles of either area, please

let me know. I appreciate any help offered!

I will also be sourcing either staff aquarists or aquarium service

companies for both locations. Roughly 15 hours/week. If a 'staff

aquarist' is chosen we can most likely provide full time employment by

splitting responsibilities with other work (i.e. Maintenance, Retail Sales,

Promotions, etc.). Staff positions are hourly, wage ranges determined by

region (basically meaning I don't know yet).

Destin, FL: 10,500 gal Saltwater - Grand Opening: 7/17/03

Savannah, GA: Saltwater? - Grand Opening: 7/31/03
