In 2019, the Aquarium of the Pacific was awarded funds from National Sea Grant to study marine aquaculture data and policy to support sustainable development in the United States. The results of this research have yielded some interesting findings, including inconsistency and uncertainty in how marine aquaculture data are collected and shared and a broad diversity of policies concerning marine aquaculture development across coastal states. Understanding the current status of the aquaculture industry in terms of production and policy is essential to the sustainable development of this industry.
California Sea Grant Extesion Specialist Luke Gardner's research plays an important role in the findings of this study and will be presented at the webinar.
Please join us on June 2, 2021 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (PDT) to learn more about this study and implications for the future of marine aquaculture development in the U.S. This webinar is open to the public. Registration is required.
This project was funded by NOAA National Sea Grant
