Help our Fish
Saltwater aquariums are SO cool. Watching bright yellow tangs, electric-blue surgeonfish and odd-shaped angelfish darting around is as close to SCUBA diving as you can get without getting wet. But what you might not realize is that nearly every marine fish you have ever seen in an aquarium came directly from the ocean. Freshwater aquarium fish are farmed in huge aquariums (a process called aquaculture), but pretty much all saltwater fish are collected from coral reefs or other ocean habitats. Collecting these fish for aquariums is hard work and can sometimes result in damage to the reef or the fish themselves.
