Bret Preely was born in 1955 in Bad Lippspringe, Germany while his father served in the British Army. However, Bret and his family immigrated to Jamaica shortly after, making him a 10th generation Jamaican of English heritage. Living on the island fueled Bret’s passion for the ocean and its inhabitants. Bret graduated with honors in marine biology from Aberdeen University in Scotland in 1977 and earned a doctorate from the University of the West Indies in 1982 in fisheries management and fish biology.
