WHO WE ARE
Inland Aquatics is a locally owned and operated mariculture facility located in Terre Haute Indiana. At Inland Aquatics we have over 35,000 gallons of salt water dedicated to the propagation, rearing, and holding of ornamental marine fish, hard and soft corals, live rock, live sand, and a variety of marine plants and invertebrates. We utilize Bio-concepts and the latest Eco-technology at our mariculture facility. These techniques allow us to not only stimulate a coral reef ecosystem but also to manipulate the developed ecosystem which enhances are efforts at propagation of various species.
This technology was selected because of its efficiency in maintaining stable water qualify parameters, reduced nitrate loads, and high dissolved oxygen levels. Inland Aquatics is located in a 13,000 square foot facility located on the banks of the Wabash River. Our facility is divided into retail/wholesale store, sterile breeding/food stock laboratory, classroom, a work shop used to create new and adapt existing mariculture/aquarium hardware, and the field station used for breeding propagation and holding our wildlife.
WHAT WE HOPE TO ACCOMPLISHWe at Inland Aquatics are conservationists. We advocate the protection and use of our natural resources. Those with us conservation conscience recognize humanities place within the global ecosystem. We must protect the environment if it is to continue. At the same time we realize that we must use the earths resources. Balance is the key. We hope to reverse the wholesale depletion of our natural resources by providing viable tank raised alternatives wild caught mariculture.
We feel it is imperative that the aquarium hobby remains environmentally friendly. We hope our efforts further this continued reality. Inland Aquatics would like to be a significant contributing factor in the conservation of our coral reefs. We will be involved in the ongoing education of our community regarding the importance of our aquatic ecosystem. We feel that there is no better way of doing this than to expose individuals to the beauty and wonder of life on a coral reef.
