Washington-based industry group that
promotes the ownership of pets and on

Science Program. Before Marineland, Dr Hovanec
spent 12 years as an aqua-culturist
working in the US Peace Corps and for a
hybrid-striped bass company. Now Dr Hovanec has formed his own

of "Science Based Solutions" forms the
core of each product which is to bring
real solutions based on real science to
the hobby of tropical fish-keeping.
