Scott Lindell and Lauren Mullineaux, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution

Abstract

This project is directed toward helping new mussel farmers learn how to operate and maintain special mussel farming machines for more efficient and profitable mussel farming. The workshops will take place over 3 days and are designed to train both farmers and extension agents who can then train others. This project fits NOAA’s Marine Aquaculture Strategic Plan (FY 2016 – 2020) Goal 3 – Technology Transfer.
