Aquatica’s pro-active environmental practices go beyond local impact.
Aquatica’s pro-active environmental practices go beyond local impact. Working with other research facilities, the company’s staff biologist and reproductive physiologist are pioneering new spawning techniques. These techniques allow increased reproduction of tropical fish for the research industry. It not only reduces stress and diseases that are normally associated with wild-captured fish, it also prevents the depletion of wild populations.
In 2008, there were several significant breakthroughs in reproduction technology which we have utilized for expansion into new species. One of the most exciting breakthroughs has been in the spotted green puffer species Tetraodon nigroviridis.
