The East Coast Commercial Fishermen’s and Aquaculture Trade Expo was in Ocean City, MD again on January 13-15, 2017. The show was in its 43rd year with aquaculture now being a large part of the exhibits. Seminar programs on Saturday covered a range of topics and were attended by a large group of current and interested shellfish growers. Many of the attendees asked that copies of the speaker’s presentations be made available for reference. We have obtained their permission and have posted on our web page.
