Frank Magallanes
About the Author
An expert in piranhas, Frank Magallanes has been keeping fish since he was seven years old. His first piranha was a Pygocentrus nattereri which he bought at age 13. In Oregon, he changed the laws so that people could keep piranhas as pets, becoming an institution in the hobby. He continues to keep piranhas to this day.

In his efforts to associate piranhas with Oregon, he built a nonprofit and website known as OPEFE (Oregon Piranha Fish Exhibit) that became the go-to site for current science on piranhas. After running the non-profit for 21 years, he donated the website on Dec 4, 2015, but keeps feeding the site with the latest science on piranhas.

As one of America’s most experienced piranha experts, Frank dedicated his life to educating thousands of people about topics like the dangers of releasing unwanted fish in non-native waters, providing information about the piranhas, and why these animals need to be protected. Still today his love for the Piranhas is a driving force behind his commitment to ensuring THE BEST updated information of these species.
