Tal Sweet first became involved in the marine aquarium hobby in the late 1980’s. After an extended break he got back into the hobby in 2006 and became a director for the Marinelife Aquarium Society of Michigan (MASM).
In 2008 he was bitten by the Captive Breeding bug and helped found the Marine Breeding Initiative (MBI). Since then, the MBI has become one of the largest databases for captive breeding information in the world. Tal has spoken about captive breeding around the US, Canada, UK, and Australia. He has also written for various publications including CORAL Magazine and Reef Hobbyist Magazine. Tal loves to travel, cook, host parties, and is a big sci-fi geek. He is also the proud parent of parent of three felines, Sasha, Oliver, and Felicity.
