Initiated in 2007, industry workshops provide the latest information on research and extension projects involving the Florida clam culture industry. Co-organized with faculty in the Program in Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences
, the University of Florida (UF) School of Forest Resources and Conservation
and Florida Sea Grant
, the workshops foster a continuing dialogue with faculty from UF and other institutions. A feedback session and social following the presentations allow for interaction between industry members and researchers. Issues and needs are identified during break-out sessions, which may be used in directing future efforts. Summaries for each talk are compiled, and contact information for each presenter is available. Selected presentations for each workshop are also available for viewing.
In addition to providing updates on research through industry workshops, abstracts of presentations given at national conferences of the World Aquaculture Society
and National Shellfisheries Association
are also provided.
