  3. I am interested in starting up a salmon farm in Michigan. Why is no one doing it today, what are the hurtles? Can you direct me to persons who can help me understand the challenges.


    • Louis,
      there are many reasons that aquaculture in general has not yet taken off yet in Michigan. We believe that there is very strong potential for commercial aquaculture in Michigan and encourage those that are interested to get into the conversation. One of the best resources for information is Dr. Chris Weeks, Regional Aquaculture Extension Specialist, with the North Central Regional Aquaculture Center. He is located at Michigan State University and is a great resource. For information about Michigan’s regulatory structure for aquaculture, contact Dr. Nancy Barr at the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.

  4. I wish to join Michigan Aquaculture Association as I am currently a Fulbright Visiting Fellow at the University of Michigan. My research focuses on socio-ecological aspects of integrated aquaculture in relation to food security, water management, and climate change.

    I would be grateful to be a member of Michigan Aquaculture Association.

  5. I ‘am seriously considering investing in a commercial aquaculture operation in the northern lower . Concerns regarding licensing through our lovely DNR . Do u recommend anyone for consulting purposes . I would like to keep everything in state . Please e-mail me with any information you have on the matter


    Mr . Brian G. Wideman

    • Brian, your first point of contact with the State of Michigan should be with the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development. MDARD is the agency that licenses aquaculture facilities, not DNR. Dr. Nancy Barr is the Aquaculture Program Manager and can provide you with the information that you need to get started.

  8. I am interested in joining the association.

    Based on information available on the DNR website, it appears that farming paddlefish in Michigan for food and caviar production is possible. Do you have suggestions for contacts with the State of Michigan, University of Michigan, of Michigan State that I could discuss these possibilities with?

    I am primarily interested in exploring the possibilities of raising paddlefish in private ponds and lakes.

    Any suggestions you can offer will be greatly appreciated.
