    Season 6: Aquaculture | Episode 2: Fastest Growing Fish You've Ever Seen

    Season 6: Aquaculture | Episode 2: Fastest Growing Fish You've Ever Seen

    Fish farmers are using natural contained aquifers to grow fish to market size at an incredible fast rate. That’s because aquifers can provide optimal conditions for fish rearing. Unfortunately, you can’t scale-up aquifers. ARS researchers are working with fish farmers to develop and implement best management practices to increase fish yields, health, and size of fish reared in aquifers.

    Season 6: Aquaculture | Episode 1: Bringing Seafood Closer to Home

    Aquaculture, commonly known as fish farming, is a global multi-billion dollar industry, and is one of the fastest growing forms of food production.  Unfortunately, most fish farming occurs overseas. ARS is helping the U.S. aquaculture industry provide more locally sourced seafood, including oysters, trout, salmon, catfish, and new varieties. In fact, you may soon be able to purchase seafood that was farm raised in your own city or town.
