Fish Transport<br />The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources uses this fish transport truck to haul fish for stocking rivers and lakes. The department purchased a chassis cab truck and had a local vendor refurbish and adapt an existing tank set-up (bought from a specialty fisheries upfitter out of state) to fit the truck, said Dave Schiller, CAFM, fleet, safety &amp;amp; materials manager.
