Columbus Zoo & Aquarium

Save Your Aquarium

The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium was closed for three months due to COVID. During that time, the employees pulled together like never before to ensure the animals received the highest level of care. The financial impact of the closure is devesting, but we are determined to keep contributing to aquatic care and conservation. The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium has been involved in SECORE, The Florida Reef Tract Rescue Project, freshwater mussel conservation, and the Ohio Hellbender partnership. Your support of the "Save Your Aquarium" campaign will assist our staff greatly during these difficult times.

Piscine Energetics History

  • In the late 1960’s Mysis shrimp (a small zooplankton) was introduced by government authorities to Freshwater lakes in British Columbia to provide nutritious forage for native fish stocks.
  • The introduction of Mysis shrimp disrupted the natural food chain as these invasive shrimp outcompeted and starved juvenile fish of natural food sources.
  • In the late 1990’s Piscine Energetics pioneered a sustainable fishery for these invasive shrimp and developed harvesting methodology under the auspices of the Ministry of Environment of British Columbia, Canada.
  • Piscine Energetics® transforms invasive Mysis shrimp into sustainable fish food; thereby simultaneously rehabilitating the native fish stocks in Lake Okanagan.
  • PE Mysis is used by home aquarium hobbyist, aquaculture, zoological institutions & public aquaria worldwide.

By Using Piscine Energetics, you are aiding in the restoration of British Columbia’s landlocked Kokanee Salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka) Populations!
