Aquaculture in Action Participating Schools


The Aquaculture in Action (AinA) program has its roots in Maryland. The Maryland schools have been participating in the aquaculture of native and ornamental species dating back to 1998. We are excited to include new state partners and schools across the USA that are using aquaculture as a tool for teaching science and project-based learning.
