NC Aquarium Husbandry Staff Earn AALSO Certification

Husbandry staff at the NC Aquarium on Roanoke Island recently earned proficiency certifications from The Aquatic Animal Life Support Operators (AALSO) Organization. Members of the husbandry team, who are responsible for the care of all of the animals at NCARI, earned certifications for Life Support Operator Level I and Water Quality Technician Level I after attending classes led by a member of the AALSO Certification Committee and passing a timed examination.  Courses covered topics like water chemistry, filtration systems, pumps, motors and valves. The Husbandry staff maintain all of the life support systems in the Aquarium, so further education and professional development on these topics helps them maintain the highest standard of care and ensure the continued health and well-being of the animals there.
