“The Blue & You” Summer Speaker Series: Aquaculture

July 14 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm EDT

Oyster farming has grown significantly over the past few years with 84 RI-based oyster farms in Rhode Island and 600 farms in the entire eastern seaboard. With this growth in the number of farms, the need for oyster seed has similarly increased. In this session, learn about a planned Smart Shellfish Hatchery that will bring together local companies, academic institutions, and nonprofits to advance productivity in shellfish seed production and support sustainable practices in seafood aquaculture and restoration projects to improve the resilience of Rhode Island waters.

*Lead Presenter: Perry Raso; Founder and owner at Matunuck Oyster Farm Matunuck Oyster Bar, Matunuck Organic Vegetable Farm and Matunuck Shellfish Hatchery

4-5 p.m.: Presentation & Q&A

“The Blue & You: Understanding Our Blue Economy” summer speaker series will run for a second year in a row. These educational sessions, led by panels of experts, are offered to the general public. Considering Rhode Island has 400 miles of coastline, the blue economy has always been a vital component of the state and Greater Newport’s economy. In recent years, there has been a renewed focus on redefining the term and reenergizing efforts around making Rhode Island a regional hub for blue economy and blue tech. These sessions provide information that will help residents understand what the blue economy is and how it impacts them.
