It's worth noting that on April 18th at noon, Dr. Mike Brown will be presenting an informative overview of modern aquaculture. The presentation will take place at the Freeman Community Library at 12pm and should run between 1 and 2 hours depending on question and answer sessions, etc. The public is welcome, but space is limited and thus limited publicity has been put forth.
The presentation will cover a swath of issues, but will likely have some focus on how fish farming could possibly apply to rural Freeman, SD — not exactly the place you might think of when it comes to fish. One of the more interesting topics, is how a number of communities have converted old hog confinement buildings to aquaculture. Likewise there will be discussion on aquaponics, along with newer breeds of fish as least some of which are genetically engineered for concentrated farming.
