Regional Event: Mussel Farming in New England Workshop May 17th

Mussel Farming in New England – status and opportunity updates

A workshop sponsored by Rhode Island Sea Grant, Northeastern Regional Aquaculture Center, Roger Williams University and the Woods Hole Marine Biological Laboratory.
When: Friday May 17th 2013 12:30 – 5:00 pm
Where: Hazard Room, Coastal Institute Bldg, University of Rhode Island Bay Campus

This workshop is intended for those with practical experience working on the water and who are interested in mussel farming. Opportunities for mussel farming expansion are in offshore waters where there are fewer potential conflicts and some logistical challenges. Speakers and attendees at this workshop will share their experience with at least 4 different offshore sites in New England over the last 12 or so years. We are fortunate to have a veteran of the mussel farming industry in New Zealand give a presentation with insights into developing an industry here.
