Marine Aquaculture Task Force


The Marine Aquaculture Task Force, a diverse panel of experts with scientific, regulatory, business and policy making backgrounds, evaluated key issues related to regulating aquaculture operations in U.S. marine waters and recommended protective, science-based standards to minimize the impact of aquaculture on the marine environment.

The task force was organized by researchers from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, with support from Pew and the Lenfest Foundation.
