Land-based aquaculture has been growing worldwide and the science and engineering involved in growing fin-fish on land has been well-established in Europe. In the last two years, Maine has become the base for two new projects that are using recirculating aquaculture systems to grow Atlantic salmon. Join us for a MSF Pop-up event on February 5, 7:30pm at the Bucksport Performing Arts Center for a MSF Forum that will look at some of the science behind these systems.
Speakers: Ian Bricknell, Libra Professor of Aquaculture Biology, University of Maine; Jennifer Fortier, Whole Oceans; and Michael Pietrak, National Cold Water Marine Aquaculture Center, USDA.
