UW-Stevens Point will host its first international gathering of aquaponics experts on June 19-21.
“The International Aquaponics Conference: Aquaponics and Global Food Security” will bring together individuals with the goal of making an impact on food quality, security and sustainability using aquaponic methods, in which fish and plants are grown together in a symbiotic environment. Industry experts will share experience and knowledge in a fun and informative conference setting, providing participants a wealth of information on the rapidly growing aquaponics industry.
Those who should attend include current and prospective aquaponics growers, educators, ministers of agriculture, government representatives and those who manage agriculture, food and health regulations.
The conference will include the latest in aquaponic technology, methods, applications and regulations; a student research poster contest; demonstrations by chefs on preparing aquaponically grown products; tours of an aquaponic greenhouse; a Wisconsin-themed picnic; and the first meeting of the International Aquaponic Society.
