PIJAC has been working with the PLC on efforts to educate the public about responsible fishkeeping. With the recent release of Pixar’s Finding Dory in the background, these efforts come at a time when interest in fish keeping is expected to surge. Among the efforts of PIJAC and the PLC is a set of materials intended to help educate consumers about how to select and care for fish and about ongoing efforts to preserve and protect fish and other aquatic creatures in the wild.
It’s an opportunity to educate newcomers on responsible fishkeeping and to set them up for success by guiding them to appropriate starter tanks and fish. It’s also an opportunity to talk about the ways we work with partners like the federal government and international organizations to promote responsible habits and attitudes toward fishkeeping and environmental protection.
