Aquariums are the windows to our oceans

Our belief is that Aquariums play a very important role in Ocean Conservation. Our vision is to see an Aquarium in every science classroom in the world!

We are convinced that by bringing the awe and beauty of our Oceans into people’s lives we create passion for its protection.

Many people in our research and conservation partners institutions and fellow aquaculture community choose to dedicate their lives to ocean conservation and research due to a connection to the oceans firstly planted in their minds as kids being fascinated about the beauty of a vibrant Reef Aquarium.

Only if these Aquariums are fully sustainably stocked with cultured fish, coral, clams can we achieve this goal as we do not want to take from our oceans.

We are currently releasing valuable food fish into the waters of Palau, helping to restore depleted populations. We expect to release at least 60,000 captive-bred fish into the wild in 2020 alone.
