USDA Agricultural Research Service: 'Research and technology development was showcased in an event titled The Future of Fish' at Bell Aquaculture

Quoting from the February 2012 newsletter about Bell Aquaculture's Future of Fish Event in January:

"Representing ARS were Jeff Silverstein, ARS National Program Leader for Aquaculture, Beltsville, MD; Area Director Larry Chandler, ARS Midwest Area, Peoria, IL; Center Director Neal Martin, ARS U.S. Dairy Forage Research Center, Madison, WI; Research Physiologist Rick Barrows, ARS Fish Technology Center, Bozeman, MT; and Research Physiologist Brian Shepherd, ARS Dairy Forage and Aquaculture Research Unit, Madison, WI...

The new facility pumps thousands of gallons of water a minute, and has the capacity to produce 1,000 tons (2 million pounds) of yellow perch each year. Only 30 gallons of “new” water per minute is required to run the entire operation, thanks to the water reuse technology developed by the Conservation Fund’s Freshwater Institute."
