Thursday: “Mythbusting Marine Aquaculture” webinar

Marine finfish aquaculture in the United States represents an opportunity to provide domestic seafood, create jobs, contribute to coastal economies, and help improve community health. Significant advances in fish farming technology and best management practices have decreased the environmental footprint and increased the economic performance and sustainability of marine aquaculture.

Hear from experts about how proper siting and husbandry, best management practices, and the use of appropriate technologies and tools are minimizing or eliminating diseases, therapeutants, excess nutrients in benthic habitats, and the release of nonnative species.

The webinar will be on Thursday, Feb. 27th, from 1-2 p.m.

Presenters will include:

  • Jesse Trushenski, Ph.D., Riverence
  • Mike Rust, Ph.D., NOAA Fisheries
  • Craig Watson, University of Florida
  • Jennifer Molloy, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Siting and Water Quality
  • Guillaume Salze, Ph.D., Ajinomoto Animal Nutrition North America, Inc.
