West coast Pacific Ocean tanks?
Hello. I just registered on the forum finally, but have read some over the last week or so because I was interested in setting up an old tank with some new fish.
Anyway, I have decided to go with freshwater, but someday I will go with saltwater.
In my current job, I have had the opportunity to survey many beaches in Washington State around Anacortes. One interesting area has been deception pass where I have seen some really neat saltwater creatures.
I have also seen some saltwater tanks set up by organizations in Washington State which contain some of the local fish.
What I am wondering is, where can I find information specifically for this area? I tried google with no luck except for finding many pages on the bit pacific ocean aquarium in California.
I would like to know more about keeping a saltwater aquarium with the local fish and would like to know if it's possible to actually use some of the wild fish, rock, sand, etc. Where might I find state laws on removing wild animals, vegeation, rock, etc.?
