Keeping animals in captivity is becoming less acceptable to Kiwis. Aquariums do not allow fishes to express their natural behaviour and offer only a fraction of the space fishes need.
Whether you’re writing to your kids’ school or simply voting with your wallet by not visiting aquariums, you’ll be creating a kinder future for fishes.
Instead of aquariums, why not explore your local rock pools or watch an underwater documentary? Swimming, snorkelling and diving are also great ways to observe fishes in their natural habitat.
