Water Quality Workshop for Fish Farmers

Aug 6, 2016, 8:30am - 5:00pm

Join us to learn about the importance of water quality management:

Each participant will receive lunch and an informational flash drive. Registration includes a tour of the aquaculture research facility and aquaponic greenhouse. Come out and learn from our research and Extension experts! Speakers range with backgrounds in Aquaculture, Horticulture, Small Business Development, and Soil & BioEnergy. The workshop will include PowerPoint lectures, but will also include hands-on work identifying water and weed problems applicable to fish farmers in Ohio. 

Recording and interpreting water quality parameters are essential to running a successful fish farm in a sustainable manner. Stressed fish due to poor water quality do not grow well! Whether you have been in the business for many years, just starting out, or haven’t broken ground yet, it is important to understand what parameters are important to fish and plant crops so that the business or hobby will succeed. We look forward to seeing you there!     

You must register by noon, July 29, 2016. Space is limited. To view the flyer for more information, please click here.
