I grew up fascinated about life in the ocean and its many mysteries that are yet to be explored. Though I only got the chance to see the ocean from afar, I was intrigued by such diversity that existed in it and yearned to know more about it. And thus my interest in marine biology, Ichthyology and fisheries Science.
