    News:
    Peter- Red Sea United States has made a fairly large change on how they service local fish stores. Effective November 1 of this year Red Sea USA will allow local fish stores to submit their orders for Red Seas's popular line of all-in-one-aquariums directly to Red Sea. In the past stores would submit their orders to their favorite distributor with the distributor then sending the shipment to the store. However, because of the current imbalance of the supply chain Red Sea is trying to get more tanks to customers.

    Jeremy- Poma Labs founder, Dr. Matthew L. Wittenrich, says, I have been obsessed with Maze Angels from before I could ever afford one. The opportunity to breed them and their close relatives to see what falls out has been too tempting not to try. It has taken a while to assemble the breeders, but we have been busy. We have bred and have juveniles of:
    Maze x Maze
    Maze x Blue Phantom
    Blue Phantom x Blueline
    Blueline x Blue Phantom
    Blueline x Maze
    Experimental breeding, and investigating the outcome of these many similar crosses might yield further clues as to the origins of the Maze Angelfish while also producing new varieties for the aquarium trade. Both new hybrids will become available in the next week, with the anticipated average retail price being around $1,000 per 2-inch fish, although certain individuals and other sizes may carry different pricing.

    News:
    Peter- To the untrained ear, it might sound like bacon frying in a pan but, to fish, it is the alluring sound of a healthy home. Marine scientists are using underwater speakers to pump out the sound of a potential breakthrough. The Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) is in a race against climate change, with bleaching, cyclones and crown-of-thorns outbreaks threatening reefs.

    Jeremy- Linking the Next Generation to Aquaculture Science - To say that teachers faced a challenging two-years while pivoting to protect their students during a pandemic while innovating new educational models to keep them engaged and learning is an understatement. But the Marine Science Magnet High School (MSMHS, Groton, CT) accepted the challenge head-on. In partnership with Mystic Aquarium and the support of Connecticut Sea Grant, MSMHS Aquaculture Teacher Eric Litvinoff conceptualized and delivered an innovative model to keep his kids' hands wet while learning about aquatic husbandry in a hybrid teaching model.
