Aquaculture plays a key role providing seafood and conserving our fisheries resources. At Mote Marine Laboratory, we are working to advance the science of aquaculture in the following areas: Developing the technologies to produce marine species for food and to restore declining fisheries, and developing land-based sustainable aquaculture systems to produce seafood and fisheries resources. This presentation will address the role of aquaculture in producing high-quality seafood and fishery resources using environmentally friendly technologies.
