“Finfish Aquaculture 101” (watch on VIMEO, 4 minutes and 51 seconds, ages 14 and up)

NOAA Fisheries’ Northeast Fisheries Science Center is currently renovating to make room for marine finfish aquaculture. Take a sneak peek at what it will look like and what it can do with science coordinator, Daniel Wieczorek. This work is being conducted at the James J. Howard Marine Lab on Sandy Hook, NJ.

NOAA Fisheries is responsible for the stewardship of the nation’s ocean resources and their habitat. The Lab provides vital services for the nation: productive and sustainable fisheries, safe sources of seafood, the recovery and conservation of protected resources, and healthy ecosystems – all backed by sound science and an ecosystem-based approach to management.

The James J. Howard Marine Sciences Lab is uniquely situated in the Mid-Atlantic, on the Sandy Hook peninsula located about 12 miles from New York City. The primary mission of the Howard Lab is to conduct research in ecology, leading to a better understanding of both coastal and estuarine organisms and the effects of human activities on nearshore marine populations.
