ABOUT US

For over 30 years, Professor T and a team of producers have been researching and developing the most sustainable and responsible methods for raising and catching fish. We know seafood is a healthy protein and also delicious! We want to bring the highest quality fish, straight from the ocean or the environmentally responsible farm, directly to you. We produce our own fish and aquaponic vegetables at Vero Beach Freedom Farm, and we also partner with other producers who have the same vision and commitment to quality. Please meet our wonderful team here at Professor T's Fish below!


Dr. Michael B Timmons

Dr. Michael B Timmons is the founder of Professor T's Fish. Professor T teaches in the Department of Biological and Environmental Engineering at Cornell University. He was one of the founders of the Aquacultural Engineering Society and literally wrote the book on recirculating aquaculture (it’s pretty technical, but quite impressive). 

Professor T is a father, a grandfather, and is personally committed to delivering only the finest quality, responsibly caught or farmed seafood. If he wouldn’t serve it to his family, he won’t sell it to you.
