The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Agricultural Research Service (ARS) Aquaculture National Program 106 and the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) are hosting a series of listening sessions to inform priority setting and program planning actions for the next 5-years (2025-2029). These sessions will solicit stakeholder input regarding current commercial aquaculture research and extension challenges. This information will provide the framework for developing the next ARS National Program Action Plan and will assist NIFA in programming and administering research and extension support.
