Arizona’s Endangered Apache Trout Safe at the OdySea Aquarium

One of the missions of OdySea Aquarium is conservation and a partnership with Arizona Game and Fish ensures protecting wildlife for generations to come.

The director of Animal Care and Conservation explains the Rivers of the World Gallery displays fresh water fish from all over the world. The gallery features an American section along with Amazon and Asian components with representatives of the species found throughout the world.

Due to the partnership with Arizona Fish and Game there is an aquarium featuring species native to Arizona and the endangered Apache Trout. The Apache Trout is Arizona’s state fish and is found in rivers throughout the state. However, the numbers are being decimated by habitat destruction, farm runoff and over fishing of streams, rivers and lakes. AGF tries to manage the resource by stocking lakes and rivers, disease management and census. The need for management and protection is high.

OdySea is committed to working with conservation groups nationally and internationally all over the world to protect species.
