GREENSBORO, Ala. -- Project updates on alternate species, feeds and shrimp, hybrids and genetics will be among the topics Wednesday, Oct. 29, 9:30 a.m., when specialists from Auburn University's Department of Fisheries & Allied Aquacultures host an aquaculture meeting and field day at the Alabama Fish Farming Center in Greensboro.

According to Mitt Walker, director of the Alabama Farmers Federation's Catfish Division, the one-day event will conclude with tours of several projects under way in the Black Belt. "It will provide farmers with a great opportunity to learn more about the work Auburn University is conducting on a number of different fronts," said Walker.

Retired Auburn professor Dr. John Jensen and Nathan Marcus, head of the Blue Star program, will provide an update on the marketing and quality assurance efforts. Butch Wilson, a Dallas County catfish farmer and chairman of the Alabama Catfish Producers, will offer an industry status report.

Pre-registration is encouraged by contacting Gayle Barnett at the Alabama Fish Farming Center at 800-838-2332 or by email at barnegh@auburn.edu.
