Anders Salesjö - Marine Biologist
I have been interested in the marine animals and plant life for as long as I can remember. My first aquarium I got at the age of six was the first of many that I have had over the years. At the age of 12 I joined Skövde's Sport diver club and my interest for diving and life under the waters surface got stronger and stronger. A career as a marine biologist was pretty obvious, even as a young teenager.
During my biology studies at Gothenburg University, I would take pauses to focus on my diving and worked as an instructor both the Sweden and in tropical waters. After my studies were finished, I taught courses about Sweden's marine fauna at Tjärnös marine biology labratory. After several years of working with different labratories, I finally found my dream job in Lysekil on Sweden's west coast - a full time job teaching marine biology and diving at Gullmarsgymnasiet (high school).
My curiosity about our marine life has led me into photography as a way of spreading knowledge about this fantastic environment that we have. In my opinion, this is the best way to keep it safe. Through the years I have won both the Swedish and Nordic underwater photo championships, and have represented Sweden at the world championships.
