The Vancouver Aquarium

Save Your Aquarium

As an accredited AZA institution, it is our mission to find and support suppliers with sustainable products and practices. With crustaceans so important in the diets of many of our animals, it is critical we have a sustainable supply of nutritious shrimp. PE Mysis fits perfectly with our mission. The invasive mysid shrimp are captured to the exclusion of other species in the lake, and processed to retain the nutrition we expect from a high-quality product. By using PE Mysis to feed fishes in our species survival programs in institutions across Canada and the United States, we are also helping the Kokanee Salmon, an important species native to Okanagan Lake. Thanks to PE Mysis for their innovative 'Save Your Aquarium' Campaign we'll be able to continue feeding our fishes the same high-quality, nutritious food 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!
