Speaker Series: Restorative Aquaculture and the Great South Bay

July 12 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Aquaculture plays an important role in restoring water quality.

Aquaculture, the farming of marine life such as shellfish and kelp, has gained prominence for its potential role in environmental management, particularly in water quality restoration.  This role can be crucial in mitigating the adverse effects of pollution and eutrophication in aquatic ecosystems.  Join us as we explore various aspects of how aquaculture can contribute to water quality restoration.
