WANT TO KNOW MORE?

Rising Tide Conservation develops techniques for raising marine ornamental fish for both public displays and aquarium hobbyists. These methods promote conservation and sustainability, and provide an alternative to wild reef collection.

The vast majority of marine aquarium fish are wild-caught. It can be difficult to trace the origin of many aquarium fish, which can make it near impossible to know if they were caught using sustainable fishing methods.

We want to protect marine fish and their habitats. Through aquaculture we can provide an alternative that doesn’t require removing fish from the wild, or damaging coral reefs in the collection process. The percent of commercially available aquacultured marine aquarium fish species is only 10-15%. We are dedicated to increasing this number, and we can do it with your help

Rising Tide Conservation reaches across the spectrum of marine ornamental fish conservation. We collaborate with over 48 facilities. These stakeholders include public aquaria, research universities, marine fish producers, and aquarium wholesalers and retailers.

Rising Tide Conservation research facilities have aquacultured over 16 species of marine ornamental fish, and we are constantly working to increase this number!

The first marine fish Rising Tide Conservation successfully reared was the Porkfish, Anisotremus virginicus It is now commercially produced by FishEye Aquaculture and sold through Segrest Farms.
