Aquaculture is the culture of aquatic organisms for food, fun or pharmaceuticals. Aquaculture currently provides about 50% of all seafood consumed globally. In just two decades, hard clam (aka, quahog) aquaculture in Florida has grown from relative economic insignificance to an environmentally friendly industry worth over $50 million to the state's economy. Dr. Scarpa will take you on a journey of the Florida aquacultured clam industry and how an aquacultured clam eventually ends up in your clam chowder.
