We bring awareness to the Pet Industry and commercial collecting for the trade. I just have to tell people what the other Pet Stores won't talk about.
Nine pounds of "Bycatch" is killed for every ONE pound of shrimp that is harvested.
Nurse sharks sold to Pet Stores, along with black tips, white tips, lemon, leopard sharks and many others. Sharks that get 4 feet or larger SHOULD NOT be able to be sold to end up in home aquariums with copper, formaldehyde, U.V. sterilizers, and a whole host of chemicals dumped in tanks. No epa, no fda, regulations to feed these creatures. Feed goldfish to any bevis and butthead that walks through the door with money in his or her pockets. Tortured with these high doses for at least a year IF they can keep them alive that long.
