The Aquarium Vet

Dr Rob has worked as a veterinarian in the aquarium industry for the past 16 years. Initially at the Melbourne Aquarium, he now consults to all the public aquaria in Australia and New Zealand and increasingly overseas. Commencing in 2003, he organized a research team working on artificial reproduction in elasmobranchs, which culminated in their first AI shark born in March 2014 with semen transferred from another facility.

Rob realized that there was no shortcut to gaining knowledge in the aquarium field and so developed the world’s first online course for aquarists and others working in the aquarium and zoo industry. In May 2011, the e-quarist courseTM was launched. It is increasingly becoming an internationally recognized course, recently being recognized as an AZA Learning Partner.
