About the Conference
This conference is designed to bring together the general public, current and prospective fish farmers, scientists, and personnel from regulatory agencies to share information and ideas about the development of aquaculture in North Carolina. Attendees will learn about several topics relevant to aquaculture species in North Carolina, and find out about the latest aquaculture equipment and products by browsing the ongoing Trade Show. Our famous Aquafoods Festival is an 'all you care to eat...' gathering to close out Friday's activities, and targeted workshops will wrap up the conference on Saturday morning.
