Participants in the aquaculture workshop set for Nov. 30 at Auburn Public Library can explore and discuss fish anatomy and aquaculture landmarks in Maine. Sarah Sparks/UMaine Cooperative Extension

University of Maine Cooperative Extension 4-H and Auburn Public Library plan to offer a workshop about aquaculture and its impact in Maine at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 30, at the Auburn library at 49 Spring St.

Aquaculture is the practice of cultivating aquatic plants and raising aquatic animals for food. Here in Maine, farmers raise oysters, mussels and tilapia and grow many different types of seaweed, according to a news release from Sarah Sparks at the extension.

Brandon Dyer, Auburn Public Library children’s librarian, and Jason Collins, Benchmark Animal Health sales and technical manager, will explore and discuss fish anatomy and aquaculture landmarks in Maine. The workshop is recommended for those 8 and older.

The workshop is free; no registration is required.

For more information or to request a reasonable accommodation, contact Sparks at 207-581-8206 or [email protected].
