Save Your Aquarium

The Nashville Zoo’s finances have been hit extremely hard due to the effects of COVID. The Zoo is known for conducting conservation work with threatened species in Tennessee, a state with extremely high freshwater biodiversity. These projects have included head-starting Alligator snapping turtles, conducting long term population monitoring of the federally endangered Nashville Crayfish for USFWS, and developing Reproduction Technologies for Hellbenders along with a headstart program for a genetically distinct and declining population in Tennessee. The Zoo is excited to work on the FRTRP program but we need all the help we can get. Your support of the "Save Your Aquarium" campaign will help us to continue to conserve aquatic species.

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!
