I Want a ZERO Eco-Impact Reef Tank!

Is it truly possible to create a saltwater reef aquarium that has zero impact on the natural ocean? Can you stock an entire 360 gallon tank with fish that are captive bred instead of wild caught? Corals that have been propagated on land instead of harvested from the ocean?

MACNA TALK: Dr. Chad Callan: Using captive bred aquacultured to reduce pressure on the wild

Dr. Chad Callan is the Director of the Finfish Research Program at Oceanic Institute of Hawaii Pacific University (OI). OI has been a world leader in the development of applied aquaculture technologies for both marine fish and shrimp for over 50 years.

He has been at OI for over 14 years and has researched the culture of numerous marine fish species ranging from Mullet, Jacks, Rabbitfish and Groupers as well as ornamental species such as Dwarf Angelfish and Yellow Tang. In 2015, his lab at OI was the first to successfully culture the Yellow Tang, which is the most commercially important reef species in that region. His lab continues to refine the culture processes for this, and many other, marine species in aims to provide additional sustainable alternatives to their wild collection.
