It’s official, the Marine Breeding Initiative’s 2o12 Marine Breeder’s Workshop is scheduled for July 28th. It will be held once again at the wonderfully inviting Cranbrook Science Institute, located in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. This year’s workshop will follow the same format as 2011; 4 speakers, lunch, and plenty of free time to mingle and interact directly with marine breeders from all around the country.
The first speaker announced for 2012 is a new one to the MBI circuit, but an old favorite of everyone – Richard Ross. Rich will be presenting on “the nuts and bolts of established and cutting edge Cephalopod breeding and rearing techniques, as well as discuss the successful spawning and larval rearing attempts of other marine animals at the Steinhart Aquarium.”
More details on the MBI Workshop will come in the weeks ahead – stay tuned to Reef Builders, or check out the MBI Website or MBI Facebook Page for ongoing updates as this event takes shape. It’s the one and only breeding-centric conference of its kind in the US, possibly the world, so you really don’t want to miss it! Start clearing your calendar for July 28th!
