US - Aquaculture is on the rise in the local rural areas in an attempt by farmers to diversify and replace crops that were once more in demand.

If not already in operation, many interests in these aquacultural farms are being mulled over in farmers’ minds in Beaufort, Martin, Washington and Hyde counties.

Anyone with an interest in fish or shellfish farming, including prospective growers, researchers, teachers, students or agency persons with jobs related to aquaculture are asked to come to the N.C. Aquaculture Development Conference from Jan. 18-19.

The conference is sponsored by the N.C. Cooperative Extension Service and will be held at the Sheraton Atlantic Beach.

There is a tour and hands-on lab scheduled for Jan. 17, the day before the conference.

Registration for this conference can be handled online at www.ncaquaculture.org. Information on this conference can be obtained by telephone at (252)633-1477.
