The Sustainable Reef

Non Profit Organization Dedicated to Connecting Sustainable Reefers

About Us

Our history

Founded in 2002 by a group of five coral aquaculturists, Sustainable Reef has evolved to include expositions for the industry.  It began its first venture with that in ReefSMART 2009, which still continues today.  In our quest to educate, we have worked with Wake County Libraries presenting classes to children, and with North Carolina State University to demonstrate techniques on aquaculturing corals.

Our mission

Our goal is to provide the connection between aquaculturists, breeders, and home reefers for pest free corals and disease free fish.  We believe it is possible to have a beautiful reef aquarium while having low to zero impact on wild reefs - and our mission to help you do it!
