Spring 2014

On April 9, 2014 Armour College of Engineering students got a unique behind-the-scenes look at the John G. Shedd Aquarium. Mr. Allen LaPointe, Vice President of Environmental Quality at the Shedd, led the private tour.

After being led through a pair of “Restricted Access” doors, students were shown the quarantine tanks that sick creatures are placed in to isolate them from the rest of the population. Mr. LaPointe explained how the tanks have separate filtration systems from the rest of the aquarium to keep all of the healthy fish safe.
