- 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
- Tour export facilities and gain insight as to how ornamental fish are cared for and treated before being shipped to the U.S.
This informative and eye-opening lecture will include captivating footage and photos accompanied by a firsthand narrative of what we experienced during our month spent in the state of Para and Amazonas, Brazil in November of 2018.
Our ambition in sharing this experience is to acquaint you with how the supply chain functions and to allow you to gain insight into this little-known aspect of the wild caught ornamental fish industry.
