Whether as a consumer of fish or business person or scientist, aquaculture is a wave in your future.

Protein! The world craves fishy protein and men must find a way to meet those needs.

Some fish have been over-fished. This results in fishing fleets ranging across oceans in search of the next watery crop.

Today McDonald's get the flesh for their Filet-O-Fish from ocean waters near the coast of New Zealand. This fish is called the hoki.

Louisiana pursues aquaculture through farm-raised production of crawfish and catfish.

Aquaculture will be on our class radar.
