  • 69th Annual

    Shellfish Growers Conference and Tradeshow

    Hood River, ORSeptember 22-24, 2015

  • Pacific Coast shellfish... it’s tidally awesome!Welcome to the 69th Annual Shellfish Growers Conference and Tradeshow. Over the next three days growers, researchers, agency staff, industry partners, and students will explore new research findings, consider public policy issues facing the shellfish industry, share stories and learn from each others’ experiences.

    Our agenda offers an outstanding key-note speaker, Ian Duthie, with SeaPerfect in Tasmania. Duthie has been actively involved in all aspects of the Australian Pacific Oyster and broader shellfish industry for over 25 years, including the management and establishment of shellfish hatcheries, nurseries, and grow-out production systems for oysters and mussels. Duthie has traveled extensively throughout the world on a Nuffield Scholarship and private international consultancies. We are pleased to welcome him as the first recipient of the John Lentz Profiles in Innovation Speaker Series.

    On Wednesday, PCSGA will host their Annual General Membership (AGM) meeting, while NSA gathers for their annual meeting and lunch. The agenda also offers three different collaborative workshops, as well as a tool school - essentially a tutorial on using accessible tech-equipment to support the modern shellfish farmer. Remember to take time to enjoy yourself and Hood River. Join the annual Schley Golf Scramble and Full Sail Brewery Tour! Or, relax in the pool while soaking up the views in the evenings after the presentations.

    On behalf of the 2015 Conference Planning Committee, thank you for the generous volunteers, growers, sponsors and auction donators who contribute their time, service and energy in making this annual event a success. Thank you, also, for your part in the health and future of the aquaculture industry. We invite you to share what you have learned, be receptive to new ideas and welcome new opportunities and partnerships that will help all of us realize success.
