Videos and Presentations from Shellfish Aquaculture Gear Workshop

Shellfish aquaculture gear management techniques and strategies to prevent gear loss were discussed at a workshop held on September 12, 2018. Hosted by the FDACS Division of Aquaculture, the workshop was held in partnership with the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation and NOAA’s Marine Debris Program. Guest speakers included Charles Grisafi, of NOAA’s Marine Debris Program, and Bob Rheault, Executive Director of the East Coast Shellfish Growers Association. Dr. Bill Walton, MS-AL Sea Grant, and Leslie Sturmer, UF-IFAS led panel discussions on oyster and clam gear management techniques which featured farmers and their personal experiences.

The workshop was recorded and broken into two video segments, one featuring the Oyster Aquaculture Panel and the other featuring the Clam Aquaculture Panel. The beginning audio portion of the Clam Aquaculture Session was poor, however, all videos, time stamps for presentations (allowing one to fast forward to a specific presentation), and information presented can be accessed through the following links.
