Not to Be Missed Events!

January 19th: Stimulating the Business and Science of Oyster Cultivation in Southeastern CT @ The Commons

Southeastern Connecticut has some of the best waters for producing oysters on the eastern seaboard.  There is a long history of local research and practical experience in marine sciences.  As a result, the oyster culturing industry is burgeoning.  Part of the Thames River Innovation Places (TRIP) planning grant, there have been a series of round tables discussing how to further the aquaculture industry by leveraging this critical mass of knowledgeable professionals.
CURE Innovation Commons is hosting this event as part of the TRIP Boost series that is working to promote innovation in the Thames River community, Steve Plant of CT Cultured Oysters and the Noank Aquaculture Cooperative will share the basics of a flourishing industry.  After the presentation, there will be networking and oyster tasting.  We hope that this gathering is one of many convening CT marine science innovators.
