Aquarium people from all over at the IAC

Hi Sea Fans!

While I've been in America, the most amazing thing has been happening back home...the International Aquarium Congress took pllasts the week before last at the Two Oceans Aquarium.  Around 400 aquarium-related people from around the world (Japan, Korea, China, America, England, Turkey...and many more) came together at their 4 yearly conference to talk about the aquarium industry.  Heidi (the author of my books) popped in and caught up on what's been happening.

Looks like aquariums are really looking to the future with captive breeding, collaboration (aquariums working together and sharing) and education. There were talks on using more high tech technology in aquariums ,the amazing work that's been done on whale shark husbandry (training them to reduce stress when the vet comes to take a blood sample to check on their health), collection techniques, climate change and a whole lot more!  If you want to read more go to :

Have a great week Sea Fans!
Chat soon.
