Aaron Hunt is the founder of the Eco Divers program. A unique approach to coral conservation based around existing scientific research and his own experience working with corals since 2005. Born and raised in Sunny California, Aaron served in the US Army from 1993 until 2001, worked in the tech sector until 2009 and then moved to the Cayman Islands to become a SCUBA instructor. His plans for a three month visit to the island has evolved over the last decade into a rare opportunity to apply his skills where they might be able to become something amazing. Living abroad, he also met his lovely wife Brittany and established the Eco Divers Reef Foundation as a Non Profit group.
Mitchel Dender is a professional Fish Biologist and the Founder of For The Reef Apparel. Mitch’s passion for the aquatic environment started at age 10, with a small angelfish tank. The “hobby” grew into a complete obsession and eventually become his career. Mitch completed his Masters in Fish Biology where he investigated the interactions between hormones and behaviours to improve growth and survivorship of aquacultured Chinook Salmon. This work can be found online and has been published in multiple peer-reviewed scientific journals. His talk will discus the role of stress hormones and why we should consider them when acclimating fish. He wants to create a protocol to acclimate fish that will help all aquarists avoid the headaches and heartaches of losing fish/coral to disease and parasites. He plans on testing this protocol in a lab setting and will provide the results free to everyone. For The Reef Apparel is a project Mitch and his wife (Kelley) started 2 years ago. FTR is a microplastic-free clothing company that donates 10% of proceeds to coral reef conservation. They have donated over $15,000US to date and we encourage you to check them out during the show.
