When you purchase a clownfish from the Clownfish Hatchery™, you are supporting captive bred aquaculture, and the impact it has on our reefs and ocean inhabitants. All of our clownfish are tank bred and tank-raised. That means we do not import wild-caught clownfish, nor do we own any wild-caught clownfish. We are a licensed facility and breeder certified by the Florida Department of Aquaculture.
