Aquaculture Represented at 2013 AAAS Annual Meeting
American Association for the Advancement of Science addresses questions of seafood supply and sustainability at its annual meeting
At this year's annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), four symposia will explore the growing role of aquaculture in meeting global demand for seafood and the need for sustainable and responsible practices.
NOAA and its partners engage in a wide variety of research and technology development aimed to ensure the environmental and economic sustainability of U.S. aquaculture. See our Science Page for more information.
