Save Your Aquarium

Aquariums are here to provide critical care for rescued and ambassador animals that call our site home. The survival of aquatic species is dependent on animal professionals and conservationists who make the sacrifices to ensure our natural family has the opportunity to thrive, both here and in the wild. The animals in our care help our visitors develop love and compassion for wildlife, which leads to conservation efforts and respect for nature for generations to come.

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!
