Adopt a Seahorse

Seahorse Photo

At Mote, we’re doing our part to help support seahorse populations by breeding seahorses and reducing the number that need to be collected from the wild. Seahorses are a unique kind of fish because the male gives birth, the only species on Earth to do so. The female deposits the eggs into a pouch on the front of the male’s body. About 28 days later, he gives birth to baby seahorses called “fry.” Our seahorses are helping us understand more about the sea everyday.
