Harbor Branch aquaculture researchers joined experts from around the country to present the "Status of Marine Finfish Species for US Aquaculture," during Aquaculture America 2019.

Megan Davis, Ph.D., and Paul Wills, Ph.D., research professor's at FAU's Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute, and collaborators from United States Department of Agriculture and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration recently hosted the special session during the conference held in New Orleans.  

Nearly 200 people attended the special session where experts presented the status of 18 marine finfish species, the stage of aquaculture industry readiness for these species, and the research directions necessary to remove barriers for the species to become commercialized.
