Rebeca and I just returned from a busy week visiting her country of Costa Rica. Our trip was centered around attending the World Aquaculture Society LACQUA conference and presenting our UC Davis approach to aquaponics. We also lectured and hung out with Biological Engineering students at the University of Costa Rica. Before returning to UC Davis we met with community leaders from the Southeastern Caribbean to discuss food insecurities in the region. Rebeca did her best to keep me out of trouble.
