Florida's aquaculture industry, represented by the Florida Aquaculture Review Council, has identified aquaculture education as a significant need. Today's aquaculturists must find ways to educate the public, peak interest in young people, and train a skilled workforce to meet the demand of the aquaculture industry of the future. To help address this need, the Division of Aquaculture continuously seeks opportunities to educate youth and the general public in the topic of aquaculture.
For example, in schools both with and without existing aquaculture programs, the Division provides resources, information, and staff outreach in various ways. Many schools have already found aquaculture to be an ideal medium through which concepts in science, math, social studies, business, and language arts can be covered in an engaging, hands-on way. In anticipation of the growth and development of school aquaculture programs throughout the state, the Division has created the following resources to assist educators and administrators interested in such programs.
