10 MYTHS ABOUT AQUACULTURE!

A must read article published by NOAA debunking some of the common myths about aquaculture in the USA.  http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/aquaculture/homepage_stories/10myths.html

And whilst we’ve got you thinking about it…take a look at this recent press release from NOAA “When most people think of fresh seafood from the Northeast, it’s likely that lobster, scallops and cod come to mind. However in this region, aquaculture actually plays a big role in bringing fresh seafood to American consumers’ tables. In fact, in the Northeast, aquaculture production ranks third behind sea scallops and American lobster in value, generating about $161 million annually in revenues.”   http://www.nero.noaa.gov/stories/2013/aquacultureNE.html
