Frank Baensch is a marine biologist and avid fish culturist and the manager of Reef Culture Technologies LLC (RCT).

Growing up in the Bahamas, he began keeping and studying marine life at a very young age. He was first exposed to the propagation of marine organisms working with sub-tropical food fish at the Hawaiian Institute of Marine Biology (HIMB). Breeding marine fish captivated him and in 1995 he obtained his M.S. at the University of Hawaii, specializing in aquaculture. Frank then applied his knowledge to marine ornamentals and developed the practical skills necessary to become an accomplished breeder. In June of 2001 he founded Reef Culture Technologies LLC.

Among his other passions is underwater photography. His photography, including many images on this website, can be viewed at Blue Reef Photography.
