Aquarium industry donates over $40,000 to Coral Restoration Foundation

By Leonard Ho - Posted Aug 13, 2012 08:00 AM
Eight aquarium companies including EcoTech Marine, Two Little Fishies, Piscine Energetics, Boyd Enterprises, Quality Marine, and Ecoxotic have donated over $40,000 to CRF to plant elkhorn and staghorn Acropora in Florida.

The Coral Restoration Foundation is a non-profit organization that restores Floridian coral reefs with Acropora cervicornis and Acropora palmata grown at off-shore coral nurseries.  Ken Nedimyer, their president and former marine life collector and dealer, credits aquarists for innovating the coral propagating techniques CRF uses.  And now he can credit the aquarium trade for financial support as well.  Eight aquarium industry businesses have donated $5,000 or more each to sponsor outplanting of staghorn and elkhorn coral at new sites in need of reef restoration.
