CELC's aquaculture education initiative connects institutions to NOAA resources in order to engage visitors on the science of sustainable, domestic aquaculture.
As a major NOAA priority, aquaculture is also of interest to many CELC institutions. This initiative is a long-term effort to engage millions of aquarium visitors on the latest advancements in marine aquaculture and its multiple benefits.
Currently, CELC is hosting regular webinars featuring aquaculture experts in the field. Our next webinar will be on June 16, 2020 at 4 PM ET and will feature Linda Cornish of the Seafood Nutrition Partnership and Kate Thompson of the Aquarium of the Pacific. Linda Cornish will discus the Eat Seafood America campaign and how consumers can support the seafood community during COVID-19. Kim Thompson will highlight how this campaign can be used to help communicate marine aquaculture-related topics to aquarium visitors. Email Maggie Allen to receive call-in information, or to join the list-serv to be kept up to date with future opportunities. Below are past webinar recordings:
