Peter Castro realised that he had to become a marine biologist during a high school field trip to thecoral reefs in his native Puerto Rico. He obtained a B.S. in biology from the University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez, but left the warm Caribbean for warm Hawaii to obtain a Ph.D.in marine zoology from the University of Hawaii, Manoa. Michael Huber was immediately fascinated by aquatic organisms when he caught his first trout on an Alaskan lake at age two. His interest in marine biology continued to grow over his ensuing school years,and he went on to obtain B.S. degrees in zoology and oceanography from the University of Washington in Seattle.About the Author:
