Stakeholder Input Requested for Aquaculture Outreach Survey

A brief survey has been developed for educators and institutions that specialize in ocean literacy and seafood businesses that provide information to their customers. It will provide a landscape overview of who is sharing information about marine aquaculture, the context in which they are doing so, and the channels through which they are disseminating it. This overview will, in turn, help shape recommendations which will lead to the development of tools and resources targeted to cohesive, science-based public education about marine aquaculture.

The survey was released by the Galway Statement Implementation Committee’s Ocean Literacy Working Group and Aquaculture Working Group, and project collaborators include: The Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance project, Aquarium of the Pacific’s Seafood for the Future program (SFF), European Commission Horizon 2020 projects (AORA-CSA, ResponSEAble, SUCCESS), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO). SFF will collect and archive the data.
The survey should take no more than 10-15 minutes to complete. Please visit this link to complete the survey by March 1, 2018.
