” Guy Harvey is many things, nearly all of them related to the ocean and his love and appreciation of that environment. Dr. Harvey is best known internationally as a prolific and talented painter of marine animals, his interest in marine biology (in which he holds a PhD) and his countless hours of underwater observation leading to an obsession with accurate detail. By 1988, Harvey was widely recognized as a top game-fish artist in the world.

  Harvey is also one of the staunchest advocates of marine conservation on the planet. In 1999, the artist/diver/cinematographer/explorer collaborated with Nova Southeastern University in Dania Beach, Florida, to establish the Guy Harvey Research Institute, one of only a handful of private organizations dedicated exclusively to the science-based conservation of marine fish populations and biodiversity.
