Jake Wood, spokesman for the Shreveport Aquarium, tells 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert and Erin that the soon-to-open facility is on schedule for its planned August opening. He also talks about the planned bar and restaurant, Salt, and how it will add another attraction to draw folks to downtown.

Wood also tells KEEL listeners about the highly successful job fair to fill positions for both the aquarium and restaurant, and how as many as 1,000 applicants showed up to fill the vacant positions.
