Tropical Ornamental Mariculture Technician (TOMT)
Tropical marine aquaculture is increasingly used for conservation efforts focused on coral reef species and coral restoration
projects. Increasing environmental concerns over global degradation of many tropical marine coral reef ecosystems, and
specifically Florida Keys coral reef ecosystems necessitates the need for immediate education of qualified tropical marine
aquaculture technicians. The Tropical Ornamental Mariculture Technician (TOMT) certificate is designed to develop marine
ornamental entrepreneurs and provide technician level marine aquaculture skills that will help fill the marine aquaculture
jobs of the future while helping supply the demand for oceanic resources from a cultured environment and not the ocean.
