Description: 

This program will develop and implement a virtual clearinghouse for information on aquaculture emanating from a variety of key federal and nonfederal sources. The Network of Aquaculture Information Services (NAIS) will develop a world wide web based system to provide 24 hour access to a variety of central databases, resources as well as contact information relevant to active and potential user groups involved with aquaculture. The project will link expertise through within Maryland Sea Grant and the NOAA Central Library with ongoing efforts within the Illinois-Indiana and Delaware Sea Grant Programs.
