Why: The OAA, as part of the commitment to the OSU ABC-2 Grant, is conducting one more joint bus tour in 2019. The focus for this bus tour will center on aquatic animal health, and the OAA has invited the OSU Student Chapter of the World Aquatic Veterinary Medical Association to attend alongside OAA producers that can speak to the real-world needs of Ohio’s aquaculturists. Jones Fish Hatcheries and Distributors have agreed to open their doors to us on Sunday, April 7th. The agenda will include such topics as an overview of the Jones operation, biosecurity strategies, Ohio fish health needs, etc. Seats for this event will be limited for OAA members or others wishing to attend, so sign up now!
What Else: Lunch will be provided at Jones Fish Hatcheries to all attendees.
