Finding the Path to Sustainability and Resiliency on an Oyster Farm: The Intersection of Business and Science

Wednesday, September 26, 6:00 PM, Great Room (First floor)

Join Bill Mook, owner of Mook Sea Farm for a discussion on the intersection between business and science as it applies to aquaculture and climate change.

Mr. Mook will explain how Mook Sea Farm grows their oysters from egg to market size; and he will also discuss the environmental changes that cost farmers now and threaten our future.   He will describe the steps Mook Sea Farm is taking to avoid risk, take advantage of business opportunities afforded to us by climate change, and help push America towards a clean energy future.

Bill’s will educate attendees about the effects of ocean acidification; his expertise inspired when he discovered a troubling link between productivity losses and precipitation events at his farm. He educated himself on coastal acidification and became a resource for other shellfish hatchery and farm operators in the U.S. and abroad.

There will be time for questions and discussion at the end of his talk.
