Chris Schreiber is Director of Fish and Invertebrates at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta. He began his obsession with sharks at an early age and started his career volunteering at The Maine Aquarium during college. He has since worked for Jenkinson’s Aquarium, The New Jersey State Aquarium, The Florida Aquarium, Discovery Cove and SeaWorld. In his current position, he oversees a team of aquarists whose job it is to care for Georgia Aquarium’s Ocean Voyager exhibit, a 6.3 million gallon habitat which is home to the only whale sharks in the country. In 2004, he was part of the team in Taiwan where, working with local fishermen, Georgia Aquarium was able to obtain the whale sharks and then transport them to Atlanta. He is part of the aquarium’s research team and has traveled to Mexico, the Galapagos Islands, and St. Helena to conduct research on whale sharks and their migratory patterns. Chris is the co-author of several chapters in the Elasmobranch husbandry manual (Volume 1 and 2) and is the coordinator of the AZA Sand tiger SSP (species survival plan).
