Aquaculture Field Day set for July 25 in Frankfort
Aquaculture enthusiasts will have an opportunity to learn more about the enterprise at a July field day in Frankfort.
Kentucky State University and the Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service are offering a free Aquaculture Field Day from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. EDT July 25 at KSU's Aquaculture Research Center. Participants will have a chance to learn more about research regarding largemouth bass, koi, freshwater prawn, crayfish and paddlefish.
KSU Aquaculture Professor Bob Durborow said the field day will begin with registration and a welcome, followed by self-guided tours of the aquaculture facilities where visitors can watch demonstrations of each of the research areas.
"It's a really laid back way for people to see what we are doing here," he said. "We will be available to answer questions and talk about our projects."
"If you're thinking of an aquaculture or fisheries project, this is the ideal time to get guidance from professionals," Durborow said.
Directions to the Aquaculture Research Center from areas east of Frankfort are: Interstate 64 West to U.S. Hwy 421 North; turn left onto KY-676/EW Connector and travel approximately two miles then turn right onto KY-1659/Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., travel 0.3 miles and then turn right onto Athletic Drive. The center is located at 103 Athletic Dr.
