If you’ve ever been curious about starting your own fish or shellfish farm, you won’t want to miss the annual N.C. Aquaculture Development Conference. The event is a great introduction to North Carolina’s growing aquaculture and mariculture industries. Activities include behind-the-scenes tours of current farms; educational workshops for new and veteran operators; an aquaponics workshop; and the popular Aqua-Foods Festival – an all-you-can-eat feast of the state’s finest aquaculture products.

The 2017 N.C. Aquaculture Development Conference will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in New Bern Feb. 8-11. Early-bird registration is available until February 2. You can find a complete schedule and registration information at
