Tuesday, September 24
6:30 p.m. Wakulla Springs Lodge

Please join us Tuesday, September 24 for a presentation by KWCB President-Elect, Steve Cushman. Steve is one of the key people leading Wakulla County into the industry of Aquaculture. His visions and community trust are leading the way to a bright and sustainable seafood industry here in the Wakulla Community. Following a presentation outlining this unique and exciting method of farming, there will be a question and answer opportunity for the audience to attendee can ask questions.

Aquaculture is finding its place in seafood industries all over the world. Our overwhelming demand for seafood is having a notable impact on our seas.  Aquaculture is a way we can begin to maintain our supply of seafood and the jobs our seas have provided for hundreds of years. Oysters will be the main focus of the presentation as Wakulla has some of the richest waters for aquaculture in the Gulf. There will be samples of farm-raised oysters for attendees.  Steve is looking forward to presenting this important information and discussing the great benefits aquaculture will bring to Wakulla County.   Wakulla County contributes millions of dollars to the overall Florida economy.  These numbers will increase and spill over into the world economy when what we are developing for sustainable seafood is nurtured and developed locally.  For more information, contact KWCB at helpkwcb@gmail.com.
