Returning in Fall 2022: FarmoryWorks Aquaculture Entrepreneur Program!

The FarmoryWorks Aquaculture Entrepreneur Program is designed for those who are interested in developing their aquaculture business idea into a workable plan for the future. Participants will acquire aquaculture industry knowledge, business planning tools, and an entrepreneurial support network that will help them launch or expand their aquaculture-related business venture.
