A Rising Tide Lifts All Boats…

In order for our hobby to be sustainable, it will become increasingly important for scientists and researchers to expand the list of marine fish and invertebrates that can be successfully captive-bred, and raised in such numbers as to be commercially viable. At the vanguard of the growing effort to accomplish these objectives is Rising Tide Conservation. Headquartered in Orlando, Rising Tide describes itself as “…an initiative of the SeaWorld and Busch Gardens Conservation Fund,” and lists as its goals the exchange of information on–and the raising of funds to support–research in aquaculture. Of the 1,500-plus species of marine fish sold in the aquarium industry, only about 125 species have been successfully bred in captivity. However, that list is growing as continuing research identifies new methods for bringing new species to the commercial market. (For a look at Coral Magazine’s 2015 Captive Breeding List, go here.) For example, Rising Tide recently reported some success in the captive breeding of Yellow Tangs – a species that has never been successfully tank-raised. As the wild capture of marine fish–and the methods used in wild harvesting reef fish–put more and more pressure on the health of our planet’s reef systems, the work of Rising Tide and other such groups will likely be the means by which the marine aquarium hobby is able to continue to grow.

    Thanks for the shoutouts to CORAL and Rising Tide – I just wanted to raise a point of clarification that Rising Tide has not had “some success in the captive-breeding of Yellow Tangs”, but more specifically, they have simply made some progress towards that end goal. To date, there have been no captive-bred Yellow Tangs (or any CB tangs for that matter)…all captive-spawned tangs we know about have died at some point in the larval phase. Progress, but not yet a “success”.
