The cultivation of fish and their surrounding natural resources has been a part of Alaska's economic development since the dawn of time—it is one of our oldest trades, and will likely be one of our longest-lasting.
But within that comes a specific set of challenges including competition, licensing, and geographic disadvantages during the winter months.

How does someone completely new to the field get involved?

Our panel of experienced mariculture industry reps plan on answering that question—and more—within just a short hour discussion. During this virtual event, we will discuss Alaska-specific mariculture trends and opportunities and the hatchery process, and kelp lifecycles.
