Smartphone App Now Available for Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center
ATHENS--More than 50 percent of Americans depend on mobile devices to communicate, navigate and recreate, and the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center now has an app for that.
The app includes all the information visitors need to preview what's available at TFFC or to guide them around the facility during their visit. Photos and videos combine with proximity-triggered location information to lead visitors through a tour and even give a look at behind-the-scenes operations of the hatchery.
The app also includes a section devoted to other attractions and businesses in the Athens area, and local businesses can arrange to advertise on the app. The mapping function will guide visitors from TFFC to the place of business. Businesses wishing to learn more should contact Larry Hodge at (903) 670-2255 or larry.hodge@tpwd.texas.gov.
The free app is available for both Apple and Android devices and can be downloaded from the respective app stores by searching for "Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center."
