UW-SP Invites Fish Farmers To Northern Wisconsin

Posted Thursday, May 3, 2012 --- 6:30 a.m.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point is inviting fish farmers to a workshop in far northern Wisconsin later this month.

UW-Stevens Point, UW-Extension and the Wisconsin Aquaculture Association are planning "Aquaculture Unplugged" at the college's Northern Aquaculture Demonstration Facility in Red Cliff on May 31.

Fish farmers will get a chance to share best practices and learn practical skills they can use back home. Walleye researcher Robert Summerfelt and international pond culture expert Charles Mischke are both slated to speak.

The cost is $50 per person and covers the workshop, handouts, lunch and a fish fry. More information is available at www.wisconsinaquaculture.com .
