Ventura Shellfish Enterprise

Had an excellent visit with the Port of Ventura where we had discussions concerning the future of mussel farming to occur three miles offshore in Federal water. Read about the Ventura Shellfish Enterprise.

Looking back at the Port from the proposed mussel farm lease sites.


Ev, would you show me exactly where this farm is proposed to be built?

Pacific Coast Shellfish Growers Association Annual Conference 9/18-20

I can honestly say this was one of the better meetings I have attended in a looooooooong time. Saw old friends, made new colleagues and sat through some great talks such as Sara Boles from UC Davis discussing her doctoral research on Red abalone. Not to mention the weather was spectacular.

I lost all three games at horseshoes this evening. I’ll get him next year!
