The Marine Breeding Initiative (MBI) is pleased to announce Martin Moe, Jr. as a speaker at the 2013 Marine Breeder’s Workshop.

Moe is one of the pioneers of  breeding marine animals as early as 1970 when he developed the basic technology for breeding Florida pompano. He accomplished the first commercial culture of marine tropical fish (Ocellaris Clownfish and Neon Gobies) in a garage in 1972, and over the years has reared more than 30 species of marine tropical fish, including spawning, rearing, and even hybridizing French and Grey Angelfish.

We look forward to hearing the latest findings from a true legend in the aquarium community.

The tentative date for the Workshop is July 13. More speaker details will be announced soon and tickets for the event will go on sale next week.

  • Tal Sweet

    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.
