Aquaponics Workshop in American Samoa

On April 23-24, CTSA and the American Samoa Departments of Agriculture and Marine and Wildlife Resources will host a collaborative aquaponics workshop at the Department of Agriculture Conference Room. The purpose of the two-day workshop is to transfer aquaponics technology to island residents who would likely use the technology themselves, either in their own backyards, through commercial farming, or at schools. It is open to all interested stakeholders, particularly potential farmers, existing farmers, and school teachers. Several noted speakers from Hawaii and American Samoa will present on various topics including human nutrition, aquaponics basics, postharvest and food safety, aquatic feed preparation, aquaponics system construction and management, and aquaponics in STEM education.
