The Aquarium held a live webcast to announce the release of a new report on offshore aquaculture, or fish farming, in Southern California. The report, issued on September 27 by the Aquarium, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and California Sea Grant, was the result of two workshops convened in 2015 and 2016 sponsored by NOAA Sea Grant. The key findings from these workshops provide recommendations for growth and expansion of marine aquaculture in the U.S. and address the complex permitting system and the need for continued research and public outreach.

Course Type: Voc/TechAn exploration of aquaculture as it relates to public aquariums, aquatic research facilities and the commercial marine ornamental pet trade. A specific focus on the effects of husbandry, natural habitat mimicry and water quality will be implemented through laboratory exercises and facility site visits.
Sea & Reef Aquaculture is located on the beautiful coast of Maine and was the first marine ornamental fish farm in New England. We specialize in culturing only the highest quality marine ornamental fish for the aquarium hobby. Through careful research and dedication our team of marine biologists brings you saltwater fish of optimum health and vivid color.Credits: 3

Course Type: Voc/TechThis course continues the exploration of aquaculture as it relates to public aquariums, aquatic research facilities and the commercial marine ornamental pet trade. A specific focus on the breeding, spawning and rearing of ornamental marine fishes will be implemented through laboratory exercises and facility site visits. Live food culture and marine invertebrates aquaculture will be studied with hands-on experiences involving both jellyfish and live coral propagations.
Prerequisite:
The successful candidate must meet one of the following criteria:
1. Bachelor’s degree (or higher) from an accredited college or university two (2) years of Aquarium/Aquaculture Science experience; OR
2. Associate degree or higher from an accredited college or university six (6) years of Aquarium/Aquaculture Science experience; OR
3. Valid California Community College instructor credential appropriate to the subject per Education Code 87355 (issued prior to July 1, 1990); OR
4. A combination of education and experience that is at least the equivalent of items 1 or 2 above (Applicants applying on the basis of equivalency must complete all Equivalency questions on their application in addition to all other required materials).In general, larger aquaculture facilities and public aquaria prefer to use copper sulfate rather than chelated copper complexes, because strength and activity of chelated copper complexes are more uncertain, and chelated copper compounds are also more difficult to remove.Since the establishment of in 1999, the Aquarium has become one of the most respected sources of science-based information used by business and consumers to find and purchase seafood from ocean-friendly sources, both wild and farmed. In a global seafood market, our seafood program has expanded, using market-based incentives as well as advocacy for policy change to shift fisheries and aquaculture in more sustainable directions.
