The Ontario Aquaculture Association welcomed over 175 fish farmers, suppliers, researchers and government officials for our first conference in four years. The two-day event at Fern Resort in Orillia included 32 presentations on a wide range of issues, along with plenty of fish tasting, social events and a new annual fish-wear competition. The conference also gave our community the chance to honour the memory of Big John Woodhouse and celebrate the (semi)retirement of Rich Moccia.
