Winter Dynamics of Invertebrates in Trout Streams of Minnesota and Wisconsin: How Can the Public Connect with and Contribute to Research?
The Minnesota Sea Grant fisheries and aquaculture supply chain project team seeks to identify viable scenarios for the effective processing and distribution of commercial fish and aquaculture products in Minnesota.
The Aquaculture Market Study is a three-year (2020-2023), $250,000 project led by the University of Minnesota Sea Grant program that was created to determine the potential for a sustainable food-fish aquaculture industry in Minnesota.
The Students Ask Scientists project is part of the Center for Great Lakes Literacy and helps enable teachers to provide their students in grades five to 12 with an opportunity to ask questions of working scientists, improve their understanding of the Great Lakes, and help them gain insights into what a career in science might be like.
The goal of this project is to determine if small-scale removal of invasive, hybrid cattails can improve abundance and diversity of plants and fish on Minnesota lakeshores.
The University of Minnesota Sea Grant program is developing producer-scale methods for raising Yellow Perch fish from egg to market size in a recirculating aquaculture system (RAS).
FreshFishFinder.org was developed to meet a need to directly connect fish producers with consumers after the disruption of traditional markets during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The University of Minnesota Sea Grant program and partners are investigating new strategies for producing Golden Shiner fish for Minnesota’s bait industry.
Fish is recognized as a healthy source of protein, beneficial fats, and micronutrients leading the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to recommend that adults eat fish up to three times a week. Americans, however, are eating roughly half the recommended amount of seafood. This deficit could be filled by sustainable aquaculture production, reducing our dependence on dwindling wild fisheries.
The Minnesota Sea Grant-led Great Lakes Aquaculture Collaborative is offering reimbursement to attend and/or present at state or regional aquaculture meetings in the Great Lakes states.
Minnesota Sea Grant extension educators will be presenting at the 153rd Annual Meeting of the American Fisheries Society, August 20-24, 2023, i
