Bringing Christmas Cheer to the Amazon

Updated: Apr 23

For the past four years the Amazon Research Center for Ornamental Fish (ARCOF) has sponsored an annual Christmas party for the children of the village where the Research Center is located. Over time the party has grown, and for many of the children this is the only Christmas or holiday celebration they will have. We feel so honored to support this event for the children. Many of the residents of the village have worked for the research center during the construction of the dormitories and the fish house. Our hope is that once the Aquarium opens we will be able to employ some of the villagers once again.


We are a research center in Peru devoted to sustainable breeding and conservation of ornamental fishes.
