InterpretationThe World's Columbian Exposition ran from May 1 to October 30, 1893. The Fisheries Building was on the eastern side of the lagoon north of Wooded Island. The building was in three parts, "a main building 365 feet long and 165 feet wide, and two polygonal buildings each 133 feet 6 inches in diameter, connected with the structure by two curved arcades." The exhibits included "everything that science has rescued from the depths of the ocean, sea, lake or river...." Flinn, J., ed. "The Official Guide to the World's Columbian Exposition."
