Ocean Life Direct is not new to the Live Rock or Dry Rock business. We are involved in Florida Keys Aquaculture, offshore ocean reef building of artistically themed one of a kind reefs and sale of Florida Coral Rock and Atlantic Aragonite sand products for the aquarium trade and private parties.

At Ocean Life Direct, we have specific goals and unique products that we want to tell you about. Our products will make a difference in your aquarium projects and our prices are very attractive.

The philosophy of the owners existed long before the company was established. Engage in commerce and make a stand for the environment. The founders of Ocean Life Direct, are also the visionary behind the Atlantis Reef Project, a man-made reef, located offshore of Key Biscayne Florida. Offshore Reef development and protection for this group started long ago. We currently consult and develop offshore reefs anywhere in the world.

Creating reefs by adding new reef material is one way to help protect our oceans. Another way is to undertake a business initiative that helps stop the destruction of natural reefs no matter where they are located that provide Live Rock for aquarium enthusiasts.. The intentional destruction of natural reefs must be stopped. We make a stand against the destruction by providing superior quality Florida Keys Live Rock from the pristine waters offshore of Islamorada, Florida. The rock that we provide is at prices better than imported rock and is of superior quality to most all imported rock that is shipped in containers after being chopped from our living reefs.

People love fish tanks, for good reason, just as I do. They are beautiful and mesmerizing in the home, office or public places. The foundation of a great saltwater aquarium is the rock aqua-scape. Because of the US demand for Live Rock, aquarium Live Rock is being harvested from the natural reefs of some foreign countries with no regard for the long term damage.. Destroying reefs to create an economy for a small amount of native inhabitants on an island is not a satisfactory explanation of why these reefs are being destroyed. The intentional destruction of natural reefs should be prohibited everywhere in the world before the damage is irreversible. Importation of natural reef material should be banned. Our oceans are in trouble and every reef is important. Because it is not in our own back yard and they are not our own natural reefs does not mean that we will not feel the loss here at home. We will! Without the natural reefs our oceans will eventually lose their life force and die.

In the US, some people are now trying to pass off purple rock that is grown in tanks. This will never compare with natural Live Rock. It is just Dry Rock turned purple in salt water tanks. It totally lacks the benefits of our Live Rock that has been underwater for 15 years in the Atlantic Ocean. Our Live Rock products are covered in natural marine life.
Our objective is to provide quality Live Rock created through Atlantic Ocean Aquaculture and Mari-culture initiatives. We will attempt to fulfill the demand of Live Rock through the entrepreneurial efforts here at home at prices similar to those of the imported Live Rock. It then makes good sense to purchase your products through aquaculture companies in the United States that can meet your needs and support the protection of our reefs through the sale of Real Live Rock not purple dry rock.

Our Live Rock Aquaculture sites in the pristine waters of the Florida Keys have over 700,000 pounds of Quality Live Rock that has been naturally developed and cultured underwater for over 16 years.

Ocean Life Direct sells genuine Atlantic Ocean Live Rock.
