History

Since 1975, the Milford Laboratory has convened the Milford Aquaculture Seminar (MAS) as a forum for technology transfer among the Lab, aquaculture community, scientific and academic communities, regulators and the public. MAS is held every January. In 2015 the decision was made to hold the MAS jointly with the Northeast Aquaculture Conference and Expo (NACE), and this arrangement will continue in odd numbered years. The next joint MAS/NACE meeting will be January 2019.
