Justin has been working in the aquarium industry for over 20 years at the retail, wholesale/importer, or coral aquaculture divisions and is a native to New London, CT. He has established 4 commercial aquaculture facilities in addition to numerous educational systems. He created the coral foods Justin Credabel's Goniopower, Chalice Power, and NutriGorg which are sold throughout the world through Two Little Fishies.
He was the lead coral culturist for the Global Coral Repository, a project that deep freezes coral tissue for up to 10,000 years.Justin spent 3 years as a resident scholar at the Science and Technology Magnet School in New London where he developed aquaculture systems and curricula for the students. He appeared on all episodes of Season One of Animal Planet's "Tanked" and travels around the US and internationally to give talks at conferences on coral aquaculture and marine science breakthroughs.
Long term projects are currently focused on establishing a research and exchange program with St. Martin’s. When his hands aren’t in water, they are wrapped around a bass guitar while playing with several local groups (Incognito Sofa Love and T Wreck).

We have a "bring your receipts" program where if you bought stuff from one of our sponsors since the last meeting you can bring your receipts to the check-in desk to get one free raffle ticket for every $25 that you spent at a sponsor.
We don't need to keep the receipts, but would like to see them in hardcopy form (not on your phone because it takes too long) to give you the free tickets.
