Mark Drawbridge

CA Representative
Institution / Organization: Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute

As a Senior Research Scientist at the Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute (HSWRI) since 1989, Mark Drawbridge's dedication to marine ecology has made significant strides in sustainable seafood practices. He leads the Institute's Sustainable Seafood Program, pioneering methods to cultivate marine fish, invertebrates, and seaweed for both consumption and conservation. The program powers two research hatcheries in San Diego, extensive cage facilities throughout southern California and employs over 20 full-time staff. Backed by a B.A. in biology from Gettysburg College and an M.Sc. degree in Marine Ecology from San Diego State University, Mark represents the scientific and responsible approach taken by HSWRI and serves as a reliable figure in California aquaculture. His influence bleeds into multiple committees, serving as a board member for the California Aquaculture Association, contributing technical research with WRAC, and contributing to California's Aquaculture Development Committee. When not submerged in aquaculture research and development, he enjoys spending quality time outdoors with his family and dogs, capturing nature behind the lens of his camera.
