About Ocean Bestiary

Ocean Bestiary is a microfiction blog. Fables for grown ups where marine life has something to say. All in 500 words or less. Each fable is illustrated by the author.

Ocean Bestiary was founded by Dr. Sarah Frias-Torres, a marine biologist investigating the ecology and conservation of marine megafauna (ocean giants), coral reefs and mangroves. Currently, Dr. Frias-Torres is a research collaborator with the Smithsonian Institution: the National Museum of Natural History in Washington DC and the Smithsonian Marine Station in Fort Pierce, Florida, USA. She is also a chief scientist with the NGO Nature Seychelles based in the Republic of Seychelles, Indian Ocean.

Dr. Frias-Torres also writes the blog GrouperLuna, focusing on research and conservation of threatened marine species and ecosystems.
