About Dr. Rocha

Luiz Rocha is the Curator of Ichthyology at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco. His major research interests include evolution, conservation, taxonomy, and community ecology of coral reef fishes. He has spent more than 5,000 hours studying fishes underwater and published more than 140 peer-reviewed articles and one book. In addition, his work has been featured in many popular media outlets including CNN, the New York Times, Scientific American, National Geographic, Science Channel, etc., and supported conservation efforts across the globe. Currently his main area of work involves the exploration of little-known deep coral reefs (between 200 and 500 feet depth) throughout the tropics. Because this ecosystem is so unexplored, it is largely unprotected. His work has mainly focused on describing the uniqueness of the fauna from those depths, and on advocating for both the inclusion of deep reefs into existing marine protected areas, and the creation of conservation areas dedicated to those reefs.
