在过去的几年里,我们看到大量人工繁殖的鱼类涌入市场。这是惊人的消息,这就是为什么你应该支持人工繁殖的鱼,以此来刺激对这方面的研究。


 

人工繁殖的鱼意思是在海水缸中出生并长大的鱼,有时,你会看见一些鱼贴上了人工饲育的标签,意思是这些鱼是野外捕获的幼体,而在海水缸中长大。

 

人工繁殖的鱼类对海水缸的生存环境具有更大的容忍力。他们从出生就开始适应了海水缸的生存环境,这意味着我们能饲养在海水缸中很难存活的鱼类,比如青蛙。


 

如果你购买了一只海马,这只海马来自野外,你会注意到它扁扁的胃,而你对喂食又无从下手。而如果是人工繁殖的海马,那它会吃的很欢乐。一些野外捕捉的鱼类无法辨别冷冻的人工饵料。

 

由于人工繁殖的鱼类适应了海水缸环境,它们并不会表现出来回走动,烦躁不安的迹象,它们比野外捕获的鱼更恬淡安逸。


 

人工繁殖的鱼类不容易受到疾病和寄生虫的影响。因为它们不需要像野生捕获的鱼类一样漂洋过海来到你的缸里,这样会增加鱼患病的风险而导致死亡。

 

人工繁殖的鱼类不仅能完美适应你的缸,还会消除饲养海水鱼破坏环境的怀疑论者们的忧虑,随着水族产业的可持续发展,水族产业的反对着们会以截然不同的眼光看待它。


 

人工繁殖鱼类不仅可以减少我们对海洋的索取,而且我们也不会再看到野生鱼为了逃避追捕而抱头鼠窜的场景。帮助它们,即是帮助海洋。

 

尽管有法律条例的规范,不法犯罪分子依旧我行我素,购买人工繁殖的鱼类可以杜绝不法分子对珊瑚礁的破坏。


 

购买人工繁殖鱼还可以刺激繁育者们的动力,以此来繁殖更多品种的鱼类。有时我们看见某繁殖鱼类被迫终止,就是由于缺乏资金的支持。

 

记住,你购买的人工繁殖的鱼越多,对繁殖鱼类的研究也就越多。人工繁殖的鱼类不仅不会影响海洋中野生鱼类的数量,而且还能使我们更好的在海水缸里饲养更多的鱼。

These past couple of years we’ve seen an influx of captive bred fish. This is amazing news and here’s why you should support captive bred fish in order to instill more research.

 

Captive bred fish are fish that have been bred and raised in an aquarium. Sometimes you will see fish labeled as tank raised which means they were captured as fry and raised in a tank.

 

Fish that are captive bred have a higher tolerance to aquarium life. As soon as they are born, they are molded to fit the needs of aquarium life which enable us to keep more difficult fish such as Mandarin dragonets.

 

If you’ve ever shopped for seahorses, you may have notices that the ones from the wild have sunken stomachs and do not always eat; whereas, captive bred ones always have a voracious appetite. Some fish that are caught from the wild may not even recognize dead frozen food as food.

 

Because captive bred fish have only known tank life, they usually do not show signs of stress like pacing back and forth. Many captive bred fish have a calmer demeanor than wild caught fish.

 

Captive breeders strive to maintain a disease and parasite free system. Because your captive bred fish is not getting shipped from facility to facility like wild caught fish its chances of getting sick are greatly reduced.

 

Not only is captive bred fish great for your own tank, it’s great for people thinking about getting into the hobby and even the skeptics that do not like aquariums. As the aquarium industry becomes more sustainable it will be looked at differently by aquarium haters.

 

Not only do captive bred fish eliminate the need to take those fish out of the ocean, but it is also greener in the sense that wild fish are making flights everyday across the world. Considering the health of our oceans, this is definitely not helping them.

 

Despite our efforts to make regulations and banning any unethical practices of fish collecting, there will always be people who break the rules just like with anything else. Purchasing captive bred fish completely eliminates the possibility of damaging the reef with unethical collecting.

 

By buying captive bred fish it enables the breeders to continue to produce more fish and research methods to breed new fish. In some cases we have seen that certain captive bred fish had to be discontinued due to lack of funding/ purchase.

 

Keep in mind you vote with your money and the more captive bred fish are purchased, the more research can be accomplished. Captive bred fish not only do not affect the wild populations of fish in the oceans, but it also sets us up for better success with fish suited to aquarium life.
