July 13, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
A Journey Downriver: From the Amazon to Your Aquarium
Green Bay Aquarium Society is proud to host Freshwater Exotics in the first GBAS Speaker Event.
This informative and eye-opening lecture will include captivating footage and photos accompanied by a firsthand narrative of what the Freshwater Exotics staff experienced during their month spent in the state of Para and Amazonas, Brazil in November of 2018. You will be able to glimpse firsthand how wild ornamental fish are collected, discover what happens between the time they are collected & transported downriver, join the fish on their journey downriver to the export facilities and tour export facilities and gain insight as to how ornamental fish are cared for and treated before being shipped to the U.S.
The talk will be immediately followed by an auction of donated items including rare, wild caught, and captive bred fish.
The event is free, open to the public, and everyone is welcome to attend.
