Taste of Aquaculture


The Hawaii Aquaculture Association and the Hawaii Aquaculture Development Program will present its annual "Hawaii’s Taste of Aquaculture" on Thursday, July 9th from 5 p.m. on the campus of Kapiolani Community College.

"Aquaculture is the breeding, rearing and harvesting of plants and animals in nature or man-made aquatic environments, including ponds, tanks, raceways and the ocean. Hawaii has near-perfect water and climate for aquaculture and this type of farming has deep roots in Hawaiian history and culture. Pacific Islanders have relished farm raised seafood for centuries. Thanks to the efforts of Hawaii’s aquaculture industry, this delicious taste of the islands is now widely available for all to enjoy."
