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.

FUN FACT #1

The vast majority of marine aquarium fish are wild-caught. It can be difficult to trace the origin of many aquarium fish. It can also be hard to know if they were caught using sustainable fishing methods.

We want to protect marine fish and their habitats by raising marine fish in captivity. The percent of commercially available captive-bred marine aquarium fish is only 10-15%. We would love to see that number go up!  

FUN FACT #3

Rising Tide Conservation reared over 16 species of marine aquarium fish!

FUN FACT #2

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.

FUN FACT #4

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