Development of the aquaculture industry is a high priority for U.S. Soy. Soybeans provide high-quality, sustainable feed for this rapidly growing sector. The U.S. soybean industry works with other associations to provide technical support to successfully implement management systems that improve aquaculture efficiency.

The Global Aquaculture Academy has officially launched a new online course outlining the implementation process of in-pond raceway systems (IPRS) for pond aquaculture cultivation, as well as the technology’s benefits, equipment needed, production figures, and more. The course is comprised of a series of short videos, interviews from IPRS experts, and a quiz at the end to check information retention.

Created in collaboration with the U.S. Soybean Executive Council, the goal of the course is to educate those who are interested in learning more about the benefits of IPRS, and exactly how to implement it. The course was filmed alongside the GAA Film Mimic the River, which explores the more human side of this technology and how it is improving local economies.
