Video: Joint Committee on Fisheries and Aquaculture, Feb 11, 2016

View the video of the aquaculture agenda item from the 43rd annual Zeke Grader Fisheries Forum held on February 11, 2016. The California Aquaculture Association was represented well at the forum with speakers including:

  • Tony Vaught, Professional Aquaculture Services (California Aquaculture Association Director)
  • Michael Graham, Sustainable Seafood Technologies (California Aquaculture Association Member)
  • John Finger, Hog Island Oyster Company (California Aquaculture Association Member)

The forum was a significant success, giving the aquaculture industry an opportunity to inform the legislature of current successes, issues, and barriers to progress. As a result of this forum and past forum success as well as the increased interest in aquaculture in California, an additional hearing, which will focus solely on aquaculture, will be held later this year. Further information, including the date of the hearing (currently TBA), will follow.

Additional information about the forum can be viewed here. A video of the entire forum can be viewed here (aquaculture agenda item begins at 2:56:00).
