Aquaculture: The Fight for our Local Seafood
By Kelly Stromberg, Hatchery Manager of Catalina Sea Ranch

Marine aquaculture in the United States contributes to restoration habitats, fisheries, seafood supply and helps the economic activity of coastal communities. The United States ranks 15th in total aquaculture production behind China, India, Vietnam, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Norway, Thailand, Egypt, Chile, Myanmar, Philippines, Brazil, Japan, and South Korea.

California will be the first in the United States to have an offshore shellfish farm in Federal waters. Catalina Sea Ranch will be 100 acres located 6 miles offshore of Huntington Beach, CA and should be able to produce 2.4 million pounds. Come hear more about this new aquaculture facility.
