Sea & Reef Aquaculture is located on the beautiful coast of Maine. We specialize in culturing only the highest quality marine ornamental fish for the aquarium hobby. Through careful research and dedication our team of marine biologists brings you saltwater fish of optimum health and vivid color.
10 good reasons to buy captive bred fish from Sea & Reef Aquaculture:
1) Disease and parasite free
We have strict biosecurity in our facility and all our fish are guaranteed disease and parasite free.
2) Environmentally friendly
Purchasing captive raised livestock helps limit our hobby's impact on wild reefs. All our fish are cultured in saltwater recirculation systems.
Our fish are already acclimated to life in a tank environment and therefore easily acclimate to your tank.
4) Less shipping stress
A short transit time ensures low stress during transport. In comparison most wild collected fish experience long transit time from the Pacific Ocean to the your tank.
5) People friendly
Captive Bred fish associate people with food, which means they come up to the glass to beg for food rather than hiding at the sight of people.
6) Eats everything
Our fish are conditioned to eat a variety of food including flakes, pellets and frozen food. They will eat almost anything you throw at them.
7) Less aggressive
Captive bred fish are generally much less aggressive than wild caught fish. For example, several captive raised false percula clownfish (Ocellaris) can peacefully coexist in the same tank.
8) Long life
When you buy a captive raised clownfish from Sea & reef Aquaculture it is only a few months old. You can therefore be assured that your clownfish can live for many years. Did you know that a clownfish in captivity can survive more than 30 years?
9) Support Research
Part of the proceeds from the sale of our fish helps support aquaculture research We are currently engaged in a research project to develop culture protocols for pelagic spawning reef fish like the flame angels (Centropyge loricula).
10) Made in the USA
All our fish are born in the USA. By supporting Sea & Reef Aquaculture you are supporting a company, which manufacturing and job creation is 100% US based
