Video: Get up close and personal with Minnesota's native fish

The state Department of Natural Resources' outdoor fish pond at the Minnesota State Fair offers visitors a chance to see 45 Minnesota native fish species up close. The pond holds about 50,000 gallons of water and measures roughly 100 feet by 50 feet.

Minnesota Public Radio's Tim Post worked with the Minnesota DNR to record a really, really close view of the fish with a waterproof GoPro camera.
