Support Aquarium through Own-A-Fish Campaign

There is a new kind of fish making its way to the North Carolina Aquarium this summer and you won’t find these fish inside a tank or even inside the Aquarium! The Own-a-Fish! campaign offers you a limited-opportunity to personalize a fish for yourself or a loved one. Own-a-Fish! is a perfect way to remember a loved one, honor a friend, or make a statement for all to see!
Customize your 14-inch Corian® fish —hand cut and polished,—with a three-line message of your choice. You can list the names of your children, grandchildren, your business, or even create a memorial to a loved one. Millions of Aquarium visitors, for years to come, will see your fish and your message embedded into deck boards at the entrance of the Aquarium’s Adventure Reef play area. Your tax-deductible contribution of $500 secures your fish and helps fund innovative new exhibits and Aquarium programs. For more information about Own-a-Fish! or to purchase a fish, visit or call 800-832-FISH (3474). The Own-a-Fish! campaign is managed by the NC Aquarium Society, the Aquarium’s non-profit support group. Decking products for this campaign are sponsored by TimberTech, Inc.
