Bill Addison - Founder of C-Quest - Passes Away

Postby jeff@zina.com » Fri Feb 24, 2012 8:56 am

If you've been into ornamental breeding of marine fish for more than 20 minutes, you probably know that Bill Addison was one of the original pioneers of marine ornamental fish breeding. Founding C-Quest hatcheries in Puerto Rico was just one of his life's accomplishments, but probably the one that most of us will remember him for. C-Quest is currently the oldest surviving hatchery in the US, and possibly the Americas.

What an amazing life he had!

Read the obituary and tell me if you think C-quest is now in Wyoming?

"He went on to pursue his hobbies of old cars in Wheatland, collecting and raising tropical fruits, nuts, and spices in Roatan, Honduras and a marine fish farm in Puerto Rico. The latter has been scaled down and moved to Wheatland."

He was a great individual and a pioneer in the marine fish breeding. He will be greatly missed and I feel fortunate to have known him.

They moved there a year two ago.
