THE FUTURE OF FISH FARMING

The final episode of our Project Snook video series is about the future of Mote Aquaculture Research Park and fish farming in America. We get to meet the Vice President of Fisheries and Aquaculture for Mote Marine, Dr. Ken Leber PhD. He has fascinating knowledge of the fish industry in our country. He states, "84% of the seafood we eat in this country is imported." He believes aquaculture is the future. You can control the process. You have a secure process with control over the outcomes. If we don't begin to grow our food supply in this country, who knows what might happen. DONATE NOW

SNOOK SPAWNING BREEDER STOCK

Capt Blair Wiggins & Mote Marine Snook Team

In part 2 of the Project Snook series, Capt Blair Wiggins head to Sarasota to meet Mote Marine senior biologist, Matthew Resley, M.S. His job is to take care of the large female and male snook that will become the breeders. We learn what they feed the brood stock and how your donations will ultimately pay for food for the next generation. The next step in the process is to allow these snook to spawn, so we can make a bunch of baby snook to be released back into the waters of Tampa Bay in the future.
