More Seahorses

A few weeks ago, AREAC received some new captive-bred seahorses from a breeding facility in Hawaii. Under the careful watch of Rob Dickie, we hope to eventually produce our own offspring from the breeding pairs as part of the ornamental aquaculture research program.

Above is a juvenile seahorse and below is an adult female. We now have a total of 3 breeding pairs (captive-bred) and one wild caught seahorse from the Hudson River.
