Abalone Workshop on Rota (April 6, 2009)

Northern Marianas College-Cooperative Research, Extension and Education Service (NMC-CREES) is inviting community members in Rota to a free workshop entitled “Grow-Out Requirements for Abalone Production.”

Michael Ogo, NMC-CREES Aquaculture Program Leader, will educate participants on how to grow abalone in their backyards. The free workshop will be held in Room B-2 of NMC's Tatachog Campus on Rota on Thursday, April 9, 2009 from 1:00pm-4:00 pm.

Abalone is an edible mollusk. It is a highly priced food item in South East and East Asia, Latin America and New Zealand, and has been farmed since the 1950's in Japan and China. However, farm stocks in China have been adversely affected by disease. Ogo believes that this is a good time for CNMI residents to look conducting their own local production of abalone. He added that abalone are easy to grow, and that there is large demand locally and worldwide.
