Autumnsky, my boyfriend recently told me the same thing! I wouldn't really mind the commute, plus it would put me in New Orleans all the time which would be cool, but I doubt I would be qualified for any of the cool jobs that would actually include the fish, and I doubt the pay for something like working in the gift shop would be good enough to merit commuting. I'm planning on a trip in September for my birthday, so I might ask around while I'm there.

Fun to think about, and I told him the same thing about the pay, probably minimum wage for the basic jobs. I am hoping to see the Monterey Bay Aquarium near San Francisco in October.

I would love to work at the Georgia Aquarium, HOWEVER, I'm not sure they could pay me enough to make that 60 mile trek to work everyday. Atlanta traffic is horrible.

LOL, that's outstanding. Is that what you want to do for a career? That'd be a dream job.

It is way better than the GA. I've only been once since they added the river monster exhibit but my mom was rushing me do I didn't get the best look. I did see the arapaima though.
