Research and Extension

The National Aquaculture Association has identified critical research and Extension priorities that would be beneficial to all U.S. aquaculture farmers.

In 2024, NAA conducted a survey of farm and association members to produce a comprehensive Aquaculture Research Priorities document. The guidance and specific priorities highlighted in this document should be used by Extension specialists, researchers and grant organizations to focus funding, projects and communications and maximize the benefit to U.S. aquaculture farmers.
