Protect our Ecosystems & Know your Aquatic Animal Responsibilities
It is important to make sure living things in your aquarium or pond are kept away from our oceans and natural waterways. Be responsible. Never dump fish, plants or snails into or near waterways, lakes, canals, washes, stormwater drains or the ocean. Donate unwanted fish to friends, other hobbyists, schools, your petshop, or dispose of them humanely by putting them to sleep in an ice slurry and then freezing them. Use care when cleaning tanks or ponds. Dump wastewater or excess unwanted plants into your garden, compost or trash. Design ponds so that plants, snails, fish or eggs can’t escape during heavy rains, and screen all overflow areas. Consider keeping species native to your local area. Most fish, snails, and plants you keep will not typically be native to your local area. If released, they are difficult to eliminate and pose a serious threat to fragile ecosystems and important industries. So don’t dump that fish incorrectly! Setting fish free may mean they die from starvation or disease, however, fish that do survive and breed will compete with local native species for food and space. They may also spread disease and parasites, and damage natural habitats.
