About After Reefs
After Reefs is an aquaculture, research, and advocacy group focused on promoting coral reef longevity through sustainable aquaculture.
Between the recent decline in coral reef health across the globe, the rise in limitations on coral export, and the growing demand among coral hobbyists, aquaculture is essential to the future of the reefs, both the ocean’s and our living room’s. No coral enthusiast wants to live in a world “after the reefs,” and After Reefs’ goal is to help ensure that day never comes. AR also works to assist the everyday reefer through its research and advocacy efforts.
After Reefs got its start with help from CustomAquariums.com, which built the display tank in our 1000 gallon system. AR’s founders are two brothers, a lawyer and a biologist, who have a passion for saltwater aquariums. After Reefs does not buy coral from the ocean: it acquires them only from aquaculture operations. AR has never purchased wholesale, and it focuses on culturing the most spectacular and unique pieces in the hobby.
