I am Peter Wruck, founder of Oceanpets Australia.
I studied Marine biology and aquaculture at James Cook University (JCU) in Townsville, Queensland. Over the study years I became a technical officer at JCU research facility getting involved in the breeding program, especially of Clownfish, Seahorses and Marine Shrimp.
After my studies I moved to the Sunshine Coast where I started my own marine breeding business. I was always passionate about marine life and during my regular dives on the Great Barrier Reef I developed my interest and fascination for reef corals. The array of shapes and colours of these magical creatures are just mesmerizing.
With that in mind, three years ago, Oceanpets was created.
I put together a team of professional and passionate members, working together to share our passion and be able to supply and deliver premium reef corals and exotic fish to marine aquarium enthusiasts, wholesalers, public aquariums and retail shops worldwide.
Oceanpets operates sustainably and ethically using selective hand collection methods including highly detailed logbook reporting, stringent quota monitoring and harvesting practices according to Fisheries Queensland and the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority.
