Marcotrigiano, Michael

Michael Marcotrigiano is a recently retired professor of plant biology and genetics, and an accomplished breeder of plants, birds and fish.

After  becoming one of the top zebra finch and society finch breeders in the country, Michael turned his focus to fancy guppies, joining the show circuit of the International Fancy Guppy Association through the New England chapter.

By year six he achieved the grand overall male championship. The next year he was elected IFGA’s "Guppy Man of the Year" and in 2014 he was honored with the title of Master Breeder, only one of 13 ever to achieve this status.
