Marine Breeder’s Workshop (MN)

July 17, 2020 - July 19, 2020


The MBI Workshop is tailored to provide the most cutting-edge captive breeding information to hobbyist breeders and professional aquarists in a setting that promotes interaction and free exchange of ideas. The only event of its kind dedicated to you, the marine breeder!

If you are interested in the captive breeding of marine ornamentals on any level, this is the event to attend. Not only will you hear the latest information from some of the most innovative people involved, but you will also have ample time to chat with them directly and meet other breeders that share your passion.

We will be following a format similar to what we’ve used in the past with an informal reception on Friday evening, Workshop all day on Saturday, and a casual get-together on Sunday so plan your travel accordingly!

After 10 years centered in Southeast Michigan, we enter the second decade of MBI Workshops with our 11th annual gathering. We also enter a new location for this gathering of marine ornamental aquaculture enthusiasts: The 2020 MBI Workshop will take place in the new and beautiful Hagfors Center on the Augsburg campus in Minneapolis, MN.
