 2016 North Central Aquaculture Conference

March 12-13, 2016

Ames, Iowa (July 28, 2015) --- As farmers are being called on to produce more food on less land, aquaculture has the potential to step in to help fill this demand with safe, sustainable, locally produced food.  With this in mind, the North Central Regional Aquaculture Center (NCRAC), the Wisconsin Aquaculture Association and surrounding state aquaculture associations are now planning for the 2016 North Central Aquaculture Conference to be held March 12-13, 2016 at the Crowne Plaza Milwaukee Airport in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  Building on the successful 2014 North Central Aquaculture Conference in Ohio, this event will provide the latest information on regional aquaculture development, opportunities to interact with researchers, aquaculture extension specialists and seasoned fish producers, a Trade Show, and the famous Taste of Wisconsin Aquaculture cooking demonstration.  “This conference will provide a great opportunity for farmers to listen to the latest advances, updates, and techniques from many well-known experts in the industry,” stated Joe Morris, Director of NCRAC.

This conference is open to all fish farmers – established or beginning - students, researchers, university staff, agriculture and fisheries department staff, and any others interested in aquaculture.

Information on lodging, the conference schedule, and registration will be posted online at WisconsinAquaculture.com under “Events” as details are finalized.  Online registration will be available at WisconsinAquaculture.com under “Online Registration” starting in September. Vendors and sponsors are encouraged to participate in the trade show and conference. Check the web site later for updates on conference registration costs and support levels.
