Martin Schreibman

Martin is Director Emeritus of BC’s Aquatic Research and Environmental Assessment Center (AREAC), a research facility devoted to the study of aquatic organisms — how they grow, adapt, reproduce, and live in all temperatures and environments. He and a multidisciplinary team of researchers seek to answer questions about medicine, nutrition, pollution, aquaculture, fisheries, and marine ecology.  Martin has devoted the past eight years to developing urban aquaponics — growing both fish and plants together in a symbiotic water re-use system.
