Supporting Virginia Sea Grant Aquaculture Work

Published on: 01/28/2014

At the Virginia Sea Grant’s Annual Symposium held in Richmond, Va. on Jan. 23, researchers from NCCOS, the Virginia Institute of Marine Science, and private industry developed strategies to find and forecast harmful algal blooms to support Virginia’s growing shellfish aquaculture industry. Participants representing research, industry, and government also discussed strategies that would allow Virginia Sea Grant to design research and education programs and begin development of a collaboration with NOAA and the state of Maryland on the forecasts.
