Clam & Coral - Farm Micronesia

Unsere Farm in Mikronesien, achtet strikt darauf die Korallenriffe in ihrem natürlichen Zustand zu belassenen und damit die Biotope nicht zu beschädigen. Auf die Muschel- oder Korallenpopulation hat unsere Form des Aquafarming keinen negativen Einfluss. Zusätzlich engagieren wir uns in der Wiederherstellung von be-schädigten Korallenriffen.    

 

Our farm in Micronesia, is careful to keep the coral reefs in their current state and to do no damage to the natural biotopes. Our form of aquafarming has no negative impact on the clam or coral population. In addition, we are engaged in the restoration of damaged coral reefs.


 

 


Re-introduction *** Tridacna gigas *** Phase 1

We have great news and can inform you about a successful project happened just in the last few days in the Pacific and they brought back T. gigas into Kosrae and the FSM. It comes to the right time as today we are also celebrating the special Date June-1st as it is the Day of Reef. Our partner farm is, as many know, not only interested in the Aquarium trade, it is about much more... The conservation and restoration of the reefs in and around Micronesia has become a large aspect to its operation. Being one or may be the largest production hatchery not only by variety of species but also with regards of total annual produced/cultured outputs. After several month of detailed and exhausting preparation to get all legal documents like “Research Permit; Import Permit, Cites” etc, last week some very rare giant clams arrived in Kosrae-Micronesia and are now in one of the 12.000 later tanks at the hatchery. The Tridacna Gigas also called the Real Giant Clam can therefore be announced to be back on the island of Kosrae. It is an incredible story as our sustainable aquarium imports of cultured clams from this hatchery has provided needed revenue to this operation and from these fundings they were able to finance Phase 1 of this project to first get these about 25years old brood stock animals back which may have been extinct somewhere in the 70'… Phase 2 is now waiting as first it is to wait for the next 4 to 8 weeks how the animals acclimate from the stress, then recover for maybe 6 month and finally one day to try to induce a spawning. We wish the very best success and thanking the team of MMME at the National Aquaculture Center for the great work and progress, but we also want to thank all those who respect our reefs by supporting cultured clams over wild harvested as you have then participated and supported the return of T. gigas...
