Conservation

There are many species of angelfish. Many are prized in the aquarium trade. When choosing fish for your home aquarium, research where your fish are coming from and only buy fish that have been raised by people, rather than fish from the wild. You also can help protect ocean wildlife by choosing sustainable seafood. The Seafood Watch program can teach you how!
