If you’re a fan of captive bred marine ornamentals, then the Marine Breeding Initiative (MBI) has the event for you. The breeding centric club is hosting its fourth annual Marine Breeder’s Workshop on July 13, 2013 at the Cranbrook Institute of Science in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. The Saturday event will feature guest speakers Matthew Carberry of Sustainable Aquatics, Chad Clayton from Reed Mariculture, animal verternarian David Watson, and aquarium industry legent Martin Moe…and all of them will be talking captive breeding. The event starts at 8:30am and runs until the last speaker wraps it up at 4:00pm.
If a single full day of marine breeding goodness just isn’t enough to quench that thirst, there is a Friday evening reception at the hotel lobby bar, though we doubt much fish talk will get accomplished as long as there are boos around. That said, there is a post workshop barbeque at Fishtal Propagations on Sunday, July 14th, at 1pm.
If you want to attend the event, be sure to get your tickets before they go up in price. The price is currently set for $36 per adult and $16 per student under the age of 16. On March 31st, however, the price will jump 20% to $45 and $20 respectively.
