About this event

The Oregon Aquaculture Association in partnership with Oregon State University, National and Oregon Sea Grant, Business Oregon, and the US Department of Agriculture, is excited to host the first aquaculture development conference on Oct. 4-6, 2022, on the campus of Chemeketa Community College in Salem, Oregon.

The Oregon and Pacific Northwest Aquaculture Development Conference, is free and open to anyone with an interest in aquaculture from both the private and the public sectors; higher education; and industry, to participate in this collaborative event.

The aim of the conference is to evaluate the current situation, understand barriers to growth, and develop strategies to promote sustainable aquaculture development. Attendees will participate in interactive sessions with the expectation that collective input will help chart a path for expanded and responsible aquaculture investment.

Participants will leave the conference with a greater appreciation for the promise of aquaculture, as well as a comprehensive understanding of the necessary challenges to overcome in realizing this promise. Additionally, participants will gain new aquaculture knowledge and an expanded personal aquaculture network.

We look forward to seeing you in October! Please feel free to forward this invitation to others you feel may want to attend.
