For some inexplicable reason, until now aquariums and oceanariums have been sold to us as something modern and new-age.
In reality oceanariums and sea aquariums are energy-consuming, environmentally harmful concepts from the past that cause ongoing extensive suffering, illness and death for the marine animals held captive.
Oceanariums and aquariums are also a catastrophe for the conservation of animals and species. This is because almost all marine animals in aquariums are caught in the wild, in traps that are operated with ruthless brutality using Mafia-style methods (see also « korallenriffe.ch »).
If the aquarium industry, aquariums and oceanariums derided this practise, it would raise awareness and contribute to the protection of the oceans. But the opposite occurs!
