I found this website a while ago and they just reopened the website: https://www.coldwate...ollections/fish

They have a lot of west coast natives, along with some other coldwater fish from around the world for sale

 
I thought I might as well share this site

That is pretty cool, some great temperate fish here on the east coast as well..

I appreciate the share :) I'm Stu one of the co-owners of Coldwater Marine Aquatics, if you guys ever have any questions about west coast native marine species hit me up.

 

I've been a long time lurker here since way back when I just kept coldwater marine natives for myself ;)

Good to see you are back at it, just couldn't stay away. I used to be a coldwater mariner and still have a nice shallow touch tank tucked away for some skates and chain sharks.

I have a ton of question! I just found your site yesterday (you guys replied to my comment on youtube!). I've been very interested in native saltwater since I found NANFA.

IF possible, I'd love to chat with you sometime, and ask question about the sp. you sell, care, etc!

Do you know where I can find information on them?

I'd love to know what sp. I can find on the east coast (especially in NC where I live), but all I can find is information for gamefish.

Fire away :)

 

Feel free to ask here or by private message. 

 

I love answering questions about the species and care on forums so that it is searchable down the road if other people are looking for the same information.

Cu455, I am curious how large your tank is. I have always envisioned something like that in the future for myself so I am very intrigued by this.

Awesome! Do you guys collect any Mico algae there? I've wanted to create a tank that focuses on anemones and micro algea for awhile now.

Also, you don't really have care instructions for some if your fish. For example, how do I take care of that tadpole fish? What have you have success feeding it?

Hey Damias, I got you message on FB but figured I would answer here also :)

 

Macro algae we have some restrictions on just based on our permitting for collection, but if you are anywhere near an ocean you can legally collect most types of algae for personal use. 

 

Care instruction has been a tough one since most of these species have only been kept previously by public aquariums.  Basic stuff like what each animal eats we are slowly trying to incorporate to the discriptions once we've seen it eat certain foods in captivity.  99% of the west coast pacific species we collect and keep will eat meaty foods appropriately sized to them. 

 

You should totally join the coldwater owners facebook group if you haven't already :) www.facebook.com/groups/coldwaterowners

Do you live near me in wilmington? I used to do quite a bit of salt water fish collecting... Not sure about books on the subject, I used to have this book but it seems to have gone missing.

Damias -  Have you seen zooxanthellae's NC Fishes website?    Pretty good coverage of fresh, brackish, and salt, including many small near-shore non-game species:

Thanks for sharing! Several of these fish are ones I display at the public aquarium I run. It's always nice to have another source beyond field collection.
