A Wisconsin Sea Grant resource guide

Aquaculture in Wisconsin is growing at a rate of more than 10 percent per year and has an annual value of almost $9 million. In the Great Lakes region, the commercial aquaculture business has a gross value of more than $76 million and produces more than 50 species of fish. The University of Wisconsin Sea Grant Institute has nurtured the growth of this industry since the early 1970s. Below are a few of the recommended resources for current and prospective aquaculturists in Wisconsin and the Great Lakes region. A grant from the Friends of UW Libraries helped to purchase several books that are not currently available at other Wisconsin libraries.

Wisconsin residents can check out the materials online for pickup at their local public library. They can also contact JoAnn Savoy, Water Resources librarian, at (608) 262-3069 or 1975 Willow Drive, Madison, WI 53706. Suggestions for additions to the collection are welcome.
