Social FISHtancing – Episode 19 – Aquaculture Part 2

By Hannah Harrison

Aquaculture is such a wide and diverse industry, we had to do a second episode! This week, we talk to aquaculture professionals in the oyster world, and those who promote the aquaculture industry, about how COVID-19 has impacted their industry.

This episode features interviews with:
J.T. Mckissack – Sales manager at Evans Meats & Seafood
Gardner Douglass – Nationally ranked oyster shucker and host of the Oyster Ninja podcast (https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/oyster-ninja-podcast/id1308780989)
Steve Hedlund – Communications & Events Manager at Global Aquaculture Alliance
Julie Qiu – Oyster Sommelier and Founder of In a Half Shell Blog (www.inahalfshell.com)

This week’s music is “Green Leaves” by Jason Shaw, available at the Free Music Archive (https://freemusicarchive.org/music/Jason_Shaw/Audionautix_Acoustic/GREEN_LEAVES_____________2-15).

*Episode correction:
Australis is actually an American company HQ’d in Massachusetts that operates a single-source, vertically integrated barramundi farm in Central Vietnam.
