Hello Passionfish’ers,

Yesterday, KPBS 89.5 FM Radio (the National Public Radio station in San Diego) explored the topic of aquaculture (fish farming). Click to listen. “These Days” show host Tom Fudge did a great job posing fair, thoughtful questions to our colleague, Mark Drawbridge, Senior Research Scientist and Director of the Aquaculture Program at Hubbs Sea World Research Institute (HSWRI). HSWRI is a world-class scientific research and education organization that, among their many other worthy conservation and habitat protection activities, raises fish in their state-of-the-art hatchery to help replenish wild populations. They are looking to raise finfish commercially to help take pressure off wild-caught fish populations as consumer demand for seafood continues to skyrocket worldwide.

Mark Drawbridge is also the Executive Director of the California Aquaculture Association. Check out our previous post in which we interviewed Mark about buying local.
