History of RAD

The history of RAD, is in part, a history of marine aquarium keeping itself. Jeff Turner grew up under the guidance of his father, Joe Turner, the first president of the Florida Marine Aquarium Society. A passion for the new hobby of marine aquarium keeping passed from father to son, and in adulthood, Jeff has dedicated his life to the industry. Being involved in all aspects of the aquarium industry came naturally, but a love for creating beautiful large aquarium systems would always remain central. Read our entire history HERE.
