The Ohio Centre for Aquaculture Research and Development at Ohio State University is looking for 30 new fish farmers to take part in a yearlong program to learn the ins and outs of aquaculture and aquaponics.

Aquaculture Boot Camp, launched in 2013, offers free hands-on classes for those selected to participate in the program, which includes homework in addition to monthly eight-hour courses.

Students spend some time in the classroom exploring the business side of aquaculture, and the rest of the time in hands-on examinations of the equipment and procedures to farm fish successfully.

There are about 200 fish farmers statewide raising aquatic animals in ponds and indoor tank systems for food, sport, bait and ornamental use.

Applications are due November 4th, to apply click HERE
