Yes, they can be. In fact, the marine life conservation effort in a big way based on raising sea turtles in ponds and then releasing them into the sea when they have become bigger for a better chance of survival. While fish is raised for getting the spawns and releasing the spawns in reservoirs or ponds and when they become big then use them as food, turtles are raised mostly to save endangered species, or to boost their population. There are a number of natural predators of turtle eggs and young turtles. As a bonus, you get a chance to observe these rare turtles closely.

One of such place where turtles are raised is https://www.turtle.ky/ in the Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands in the Caribbean. Here turtles are raised like fish. A visit to the centre is among the best things to do in the Cayman Islands. You will be delighted to see so many turtles of different size colour and shape at the same place. It is favourite excursions in the Grand Cayman.

Do you not love fun? There are a number of fun things to do in the Grand Cayman. Scuba diving, snort-boating or eating good food to name a few. Turtle reef in the Grand Cayman is among the best places for these activities.

Yes, Turtles poop a lot, and if their tank is too small, it will get dirty a lot faster. You should never put them in a fish tank or aquarium because they also need fresh air and environment. Turtles always should be in their natural habitats -
exploring, seeking mates and raising families.
