OFF-BOTTOM OYSTER AQUACULTURE TRAINING PROGRAM APPLICATION

The Off-Bottom Oyster Aquaculture Training Program is now accepting applications for the Oyster Farming Fundamentals course for the 2021–2022 season. The program will accept 15 participants. If interest exceeds capacity, a lottery drawing will determine class entry. A random drawing of applicants, beginning with those who have demonstrated participation in the commercial seafood industry, will be conducted at the “Required Informational Session” on June 22,2021. The first 15 will be offered positions in the Off-Bottom Oyster Aquaculture Training Program and the rank order will be used for selection of training gear type after coursework is completed.
