UW, aquaculture group to offer fish workshop

Posted:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Fish farmers and hatchery workers can get a crash course on cold water fish next month in northern Wisconsin.

The University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, the Wisconsin Aquaculture Association, the UW-Madison aquaculture program and UW-Extension will sponsor a workshop in Bayfield and Red Cliff in early June. The session will focus on research on species such as arctic char, Coho salmon, Atlantic salmon and rainbow trout as well as on pond management and water quality. Experts from around the country are scheduled to speak.

The sessions are set for June 8-9. Registration is $75 for the aquaculture association's members and $100 for nonmembers.
