No Fishing Poles!

I’m going to take my son to the Georgia Aquarium soon. I was browsing their website and came across this tidbit (emphasis mine):

For the safety of our guests, everyone must go through the security checkpoints before entering the Aquarium. No guns, knives, lighters, matches or fishing poles are permitted inside Georgia Aquarium.
Well, I’m pretty disappointed about this, because I was planning on catching one of those whale sharks to bring home! :)
