Financial assistance available for growers to attend
The 3rd Annual Oyster South Symposium is being held on February 22-23th, 2019 in Orange Beach, Alabama. Sponsored by Oyster South, Inc. (a non-profit dedicated to advancing oyster aquaculture in the southern US), in collaboration with National Sea Grant, this event brings together producers, gear suppliers, distributors, chefs, food writers, vendors, researchers, students and managers from the southeast region to discuss pressing issues and relevant, practical research on oyster aquaculture. Registration is now open and includes admission to all informational sessions (all day Friday and Saturday morning), all breaks, lunch on Friday, a mixer on Friday night, and the trade show. Meeting fees are based on current membership and industry role.
Current Oyster South paid members will receive a discount code to receive a 50% discount on the listed prices. If you are not a current member, you can join here. For any commercial oyster growers that register to attend, National Sea Grant has provided financial assistance to defray costs of attending the symposium by $200. This benefit is on a first come, first serve basis, so register early. Registered growers will be contacted after registration. Oyster South membership is not required to qualify for this support.
