Usually, academic and institutional breeding successes lead to the offspring being circulated to other institutions. But an exciting announcement from Proaquatix in Vero Beach, FL, means fans of captive-bred marine aquarium fish will soon have an opportunity to be among the first to purchase and own one of the latest captive-breeding breakthroughs.

“[We are] so excited to announce that we will be offering the first-ever commercially available 100% aquacultured Cuban Hogfish (Bodianus pulchellus)!” says Todd Gill, salesman at Proaquatix.

“They were aquacultured by the University of Florida Research and Education Center with Rising Tide Conservation. Seventy-five percent of our sales proceeds will be donated back to Rising Tide to help fund their marine ornamental aquaculture research. We will be offering these captive-bred gems next week for a great base price, but are hoping to get offers above ‘base’ to better fuel the fundraiser for Rising Tide. [The pictures shown are] of the actual fish to be offered; they were taken at our Vero Beach facility. Quantities are limited to three fish available to any account.

“Let the offers begin!! Email us at Sales@Proaquatix.com #KeepItCaptive #OceanUnexploited”

Proaquatix is encouraging offers with the goal of maximizing the financial benefit to Rising Tide Conservation!
