Carlos Martinez joined the UF/IFAS Tropical Aquaculture Laboratory team in April of 2001.  Prior to becoming faculty for the University of Florida, Carlos spent nearly eight years in Guayaquil, Ecuador designing, building and operating a 650-acre commercial shrimp farm. Upon returning to the United States in 1994, he settled in Lakeland, Florida, where he purchased an ornamental tropical fish farm and dedicated the next seven years to the successful production of several varieties of tropical fish.  As, a hands-on, one-on-one extension agent, Carlos’ responsibilities encompass all aspects of commercial tropical fish production in both marine and fresh water and include such disciplines as: fish husbandry, fry-juvenile-adult and brood stock nutrition, water quality, fish health, and pond management including aquatic pests and predators, as well as ornamental aquatic plants. Carlos also doubles as a full Florida Sea Grant Extension Agent.
