The Great Fish. The Great Fish

Totally awesome and astonishing. Definitely worth a drive-by.

[Lauren Adasiak Cocilova, 01/27/2014]

The 65-foot-long Great Fish has been astonishing visitors since 1995.

The Great Fish. The Great Fish

It appears as though the Great Fish is beginning to turn into a bluegill. The bronze has begun to turn blue over the years.

[David, 11/01/2013]

The Great Fish has been out in the weather since 1995. We prefer its oxidation to what would have happened to a real, 65-foot-long fish.

Giant Bronze-colored Fish

I like a tall tale as much as the next person, but I feel its important to present the facts to the public. The giant fish [reported in Georgia tips] is only 65 ft tall and is only bronze colored. For any of you that feel this correction takes the shine off of the this glorious monument, if you wait until christmas, it is festively adorned with a giant santa hat.

Giant Bronze Fish

Outside the Atlanta Fish Market restaurant on Pharr Road in Buckhead they have a 80 foot high bronze fish that comes up out of a fountain and really is pretty cool enough to get a mention on your page.

[John O., 10/01/1996]
