US - Worldwide demand for fish continues to grow, and Illinois soybean industry leaders got an up-close look at one of the ways their product can become part of this rapidly expanding enterprise. Illinois Soybean Association directors, staff, industry partners and key media recently toured the operations of the University of New Hampshire's Open Aquaculture Program to see first-hand the feasibility of offshore aquaculture. Richard Langan, Cooperative Institute for New England Mariculture and Fisheries Open Ocean Aquaculture Program director at UNH, led the group in a tour of the Jere A.Chase Ocean Engineering Laboratory. Following the tour, presentations were given by Michael Rubino of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration; Diane Bellis of AgSource Inc.; Steve Hart, Purdue University's Soy-in-Aquaculture Project coordinator; Mike Cremer, U.S. Soybean Export Council aquaculture technical director; Bridget Owen. USSEC marketing manager; and Langan. Source: AgriNews
