For the third year in a row, the company is sponsoring a Kid’s Contest at the show. Children are encouraged to unleash their imagination by creating their own freshwater aquarium at the Tetra booth (#208).
This year also marks a new Tetra philanthropic initiative in support of Project Piaba, a New England Aquarium-based organization promoting the sustainable harvest of aquatic resources in Amazonian rainforests to ensure their survival. Project Piaba’s aquariums and equipment at their Aquatic Experience booth (#722) will be supplied by Tetra.
“As practicing environmental stewards ourselves, we recognize the value Project Piaba has in fostering environmental protection of the Amazonian fish trade, and its positive influence in advancing social welfare and economic prosperity. We are proud to stand behind the organization and support its cause,” said John Fox, division vice president of aquatic marketing for Spectrum Brands.
Additionally, Tetra will supply aquariums for the show’s hosts, including seven of the tank ensembles in the “Fish Around the World” display.
