For those of you that didn’t know the theme of this year’s MACNA, it was ‘celebrating aquaculture’. I thought it was very fitting and well deserved that MASNA chose my friend, the ultimate aquaculturist Tom Bowling of Biota Aquariums, for the prestigious Aquarist of the Year award. Tom has been in our industry for a couple of decades working to provide sustainable options and has been working for / with many different reputable organizations and industry professionals to bring a real long list of sustainable, captive-bred, and aquacultured animals into our hobby. Check out my interview with him as we talk about his accomplishments, Biota, and what is to come!
