Forum Will Create Aquaculture Communications Strategy

September 5, 2018

The Aquarium is addressing the future of our food systems with special programs this fall. On October 4 and 5, the Aquarium’s Seafood for the Future program and American Honda in partnership with the Marine Science Foundation will host a Sustainable Seafood Forum. The goal of the forum is to develop a communications strategy to provide accurate information and promote responsible marine aquaculture in the U.S. to consumers and the general public.

Marine aquaculture, or farming of the sea, offers many environmental benefits relative to other forms of animal protein production, but the industry’s growth is often hindered by negative public perception.

Forum proceedings on Day 1, October 4, will be open to the public. To RSVP, email Linda Brown at and write RSVP Seafood Forum in the subject line.
