OOA Salt Water Fish

Our vendors need to provide us with a certification affidavit identifying their fish collection techniques as safe and humane prior to them conducting business with us. We do not endorse the use of any chemicals or substances that anesthetize fish and make them easier to catch. Additionally, we monitor our collectors to make sure they are not over collecting corals or rocks to the degree that they are not replenishable. We do not sell creatures that will not thrive in a captured setting. For example, we avoid selling Mandarin Gobies or Spotted Filefish. Although beautiful, they do not readily adapt to eating in captivity. We try to train hunting carnivorous fish to eat frozen preparation prior to selling them. Our goal is to provide healthy, compatible, colorful, attractive and active fish.
