Increasing concern has risen recently about the endangerment of our Earth's aqua-environments through exporting/ importing and other human activities. In response, the techniques that concern the transporting and displaying of these animals as a hobby and science has advanced considerably in the last decade. Furthermore, the availability of marine and freshwater life has increased notably as a direct result.
Aquarium Technologies shares these concerns and investigates our associations with certain vendors and resources that ensure, if not enhance, our world's underwater wildlife. All wildlife collectors are to be licensed and heed all regulations of protected species. These licensed suppliers use techniques to collect that do not use harmful methods. This includes captures of animals with any chemicals -- only net systems may be used. Likewise, all live reef rock may only be collected from ship disturbed and/or storm areas and/or by permit ( i.e. damaged reef ).
