The ocean and its citizens inspire wonder and curiosity and are a source of life, knowledge, and joy.  I am a larval fish researcher and marine life photographer.  The ocean is my ultimate classroom, sanctuary, and broodstock tank. This site is dedicated to aquaculture and marine life, with a special focus on our favorite gill-bearing vertebrates: fishes.
