Part of the MBI’s goal is to promote captive breeding of new species that haven’t been done before and to recognize the efforts of those that succeed. To be granted a species first award, the breeder must be able to provide proof of the date of the success via a verifiable third party publication including, books, scientific journals, online forums, or the MBI system. Extremely detailed Journals within the MBI are required for this award. When granted a Species First Award, a star medal will be applied over regular success icon to indicate that it is a Species First. The MBI Council is proud to register and confirm the following Species First awards: Oxymonacanthus longirostris: Matthew Pedersen, 20091st-OxymonocanthusOSFFMP2http://www.mbisite.org/DReview.aspx?ID=29http://www.lsmac.org/smf/index.php?topic=140.0Sepia bandensis: Richard Ross, 2007 Sepia bandensis 1stTFH-5-of-6http://www.mbisite.org/DReview.aspx?ID=89http://www.mbisite.org/Forums/tm.aspx?m=47829If you have proof of success for a species that has not been done before please fill out a journal and reports for your work and submit a request for a Species First here: http://www.mbisite.org/SFRequest.aspx

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.
