The Blue Economy Symposium & Learning Festival

Presented by Visit Fort Bragg at Fort Bragg

Blue Economy Symposium

This symposium will bring together local and state agencies to develop pathways forward for the community. The first day of the symposium will focus on city and harbor infrastructure needs, discussions with commercial/recreational fishers and associated businesses about sustainable blue economies followed by education, entrepreneurship and job force training considerations to support growing a blue economy. The second day will explore the potential of developing an aquaculture park in the region.

Speakers will present information on different aspects of current and potential aquaculture activities elsewhere in California that are restorative and/or commercial in nature. The symposium is intended to highlight current efforts underway to: support sustainable fishing economies; expand community of aquaculture practices in California; and introduce concept design to establish municipal ocean water infrastructure for aquariums, research, and aquaculture.
