Conservation & Education
Conservation through innovation. Awareness through experience.
Ocean conservation is Biota’s #1 priority.
We believe that innovation and education are the best ways to protect and restore our marine environment. Aquaculture is essential for the future.
We must plant the sea and herd its animals using the sea as farmers instead of hunters. That is what civilization is all about – farming replacing hunting.
Our ocean is under threat
It’s no secret that the ocean is under increasing pressure from climate change, industrial fishing, pollution and other threats.
In the Pacific alone, several areas of reef have completely disappeared, taking with them a wide range of species, from corals, sponges and clams to turtles, rays and fish.
The status quo cannot continue. At Biota, we are doing everything we can to develop more sustainable aquaculture solutions. It’s our way of helping to safeguard the future of our marine environment.
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.
