For decades, the US has increasingly relied on seafood grown, caught and/or processed overseas. This has been especially true for farm raised seafood. Until recently, US efforts to grow seafood have been eclipsed by countries with legal frameworks and environments more accommodating to aquaculture. Land based, Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS) are changing the landscape. Early high volume growers of land based aquaculture on US soil are working to reverse the trend. Join us; learn how RAS aquaculture is bringing seafood closer to home! Confirmed speakers include Damien Claire of Atlantic Sapphire, Martin Gardner of Blue Ridge Aquaculture (Tilapia) and Robin Pearl of Sun Shrimp.
