California has been at the forefront of environmental action for decades. However our ocean, bays and estuaries are still in dire need of not only protection but restoration. While aquaculture has been historically linked to contributing to environmental damage, more recently aquaculture is being used with the goal to restore and enhance our marine environment.
California Sea Grant and Save Our Shores is pleased to present a short introduction to three of the restoration and conservation oriented aquaculture activities underway in California. Tune in to this webinar and hear about endangered white abalone’s road to recovery, efforts to rebuild decimated Olympia oyster populations, and sea urchin ranching with a view to restore our kelp forests.
Each presenter will give a brief 10 min introduction of their restoration aquaculture program followed by 5 mins of open Q&A with the audience.
