The Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission (ASFMC) has selected five aquaculture pilot projects to receive funding. Through these pilot projects, emphasis is being placed on promising but less commercially developed technologies for finfish and shellfish, and other industry needs like increased permitting efficiency.



As part of its efforts to foster responsible aquaculture and seafood security in the US, NOAA Fisheries provided USD 575,000 in funding to the Commission to support these projects. Following a rigorous review, which included an evaluation of the technical aspects of the proposals as well as their compliance with environmental laws,  the following five projects were selected.

The projects,  ranging from black sea bass production to aquaculture workforce development,  will begin in August and are scheduled for completion in 2020.
