Since 2007, ACI Aquaculture has been committed to supplying the best quality commercially farmed corals in the industry. We have slowly grown our farming capabilities over the years and we are truly excited about the future impact aquaculture will have on our industry and sustainability of our worlds reefs.
ACI Aquaculture is the largest producer of farmed corals with over 35 species in production. In addition, we have the largest variety of unique color morphs per species in production.
What is Aquaculture? Here at ACI, coral aquaculture is more than simply gluing a fragment of coral onto a ceramic plug. Aquacultured corals at ACI originally start from a wild coral fragment. However, what is sold is grown 100% in captivity. For example, ACI’s Rainbow Montipora began from a coral fragment received in the summer of 2014. All of the aquacultured frags that are sold today are generations in production and have never seen the wild. They have been farmed 100% in captivity.
Our goal is to provide a quality animal at affordable prices to retail stores and ultimately hobbyists around the world. It has taken years to truly farm the variety of species that we have available today. We do not add a “name” to our corals unless they are 100% farmed in captivity.
commitment to sustainability
We believe aquaculture is the future of our industry. We continue to support education initiatives and sustainable collection around the globe. We work with Public Aquariums on creating 100% Aquacultured exhibits to promote awareness of the efforts being made in the field of coral farming and conservation.
