in 1995, ReefQuest Marine Projects (Formerly ReefQuest Expeditions)
is directed and operated by R. Aidan Martin and Anne Martin, a
husband-and-wife team of marine biologists. ReefQuest's Shark
Research Program is dedicated to conducting original research
on shark behavior, ecology, and life history through field expeditions
in which participants actively assist on-going research.
ReefQuest also teaches credit and non-credit courses in marine
natural history, produces educational materials, provides lectures
and conducts shark expeditions for research purposes, as well as
to educate interested people about the wonders and perils faced
Founded in 2001, the ReefQuest Centre for Shark Research has become
an important source for Elasmobranch information and the Centre
itself is dedicated to shark and ray conservation through its scientific
research and public education programs.
