Todd Gardner is the next speaker to be announced for the 2012 Marine Breeder’s Workshop on July 28 at the Cranbrook Institute of Science in Bloomfield Hills, MI. We had the pleasure of hearing Todd speak last year and he has even more exciting news to report this year!

Todd is a biologist at the Long Island Aquarium in Riverhead, NY and a professor of Biology at Suffolk County Community College.  His professional background spans a variety of disciplines including commercial aquaculture, fisheries biology, documentary film production, and environmental education.

Todd’s current work at the Long Island Aquarium involves caring for exhibits, leading collecting excursions, and of course, continuing his aquaculture research behind the scenes.  To date, he has successfully raised more than 40 species of marine fish.

Tal got back into the hobby in 2006 after a long break. After hearing Dr. Frank Marini speak at the Midwest Marine Conference in 2008 he was hooked on fish breeding . Since then he has created his own website with his personal captive breeding information and helped create the Marine Breeding Initiative. It is Tal's hope to promote captive breeding as much as possible by speaking and writing about the topic.
