About us

Oceans, Reefs & Aquariums (ORA®) produces aquacultured saltwater fish, invertebrates, and live aquarium foods for the marine aquarium hobby. The ORA hatchery complex is located at Florida Atlantic University’s Harbor Branch Campus in Ft. Pierce, Florida. ORA is the largest marine ornamental hatchery in North America and we are constantly developing new techniques to bring the finest captive bred specimens to environmentally conscientious aquarists throughout the world. Aquacultured marine life is the only alternative to wild caught fish and invertebrates for aquariums.

ORA fish help you avoid the uncertainty of capture, handling, transport, and disease associated with wild caught fish. Our fish are raised in an aquarium environment from the time they are born and therefore are exceedingly hardy as aquarium inhabitants. ORA sells fish grown to full size and whose color is as vivid as that seen on the reef. Through the use of a special nutritionally balanced diet the color and vitality of ORA fish is unsurpassed in the field of aquaculture.

ORA’s mission is to research and produce, through aquaculture, species of saltwater fish and invertebrates for the marine aquarium trade. ORA is committed to providing the modern marine aquarist healthy and attractive alternatives to wild caught specimens. ORA aquacultured species help conserve coral reefs and gives aquarium hobbyists a better chance of success.

Ultimately, ORA’s goal is to provide a full range of aquacultured products that will ultimately lead to the 100% aquacultured reef aquarium. This is our commitment to help ensure the future of the hobby as well as conserve the natural reef environment. You can read about some of our other conservation projects here.
