  • Foster the interest of youth in the field.
  • Encourage the breeding and displaying of aquatic life.
  • Advance affiliations between kindred organizations in the US and throughout the world.

  • Display the fact that ichthyology is a serious, educational, and entertaining study and field.
  • Promote interactive programs and experiences.

Our fundamental objective is to realize how we impact the community that we do business in, knowing that we will stand the test of time if the local residents approve and support our center.

We will strive to inspire visitors of all ages and from all walks of life to better understand and care about our rivers and oceans. Through fascinating exhibits and interactive programs, we aim to provide both entertainment and education for every person that walks into the aquarium.
