Interagency Working Group on Aquaculture (IWGA) - Public Meeting
Tuesday, February 20, 2018  1:30 - 5:00  Concorde A
Chair: Gene Kim
The Interagency Working on Aquaculture (IWGA), previously known as the Joint Subcommittee on Aquaculture, is hosting a public meeting at the Aquaculture America 2018 Conference venue. This public meeting provides an opportunity for the IWGA to discuss ongoing and planned activities in support of aquaculture development in the United States with stakeholders. In turn, this meeting provides an opportunity for the stakeholders to discuss issues of relevance to the IWGA members in attendance. The IWGA was created by the National Aquaculture Act of 1980 and is chaired by the Department of Agriculture with vice-chairs from the Department of Commerce and Department of the Interior. The IWGA reports to the Committee on Science of the National Science and Technology Council. The IWGA addresses issues of national scope and importance and may form national task forces or special projects to facilitate a coordinated, systematic approach to addressing critical issues and needs. The purpose of the coordinating group is to increase the overall effectiveness and productivity of Federal aquaculture research, transfer, and assistance programs. In fulfilling this purpose, the coordinating group: 1. Reviews the national needs for aquaculture research, technology transfer and technology assistance programs; 2. Undertakes planning, coordination, and communication among Federal agencies engaged in the science, engineering, and technology of aquaculture; 3. Collect, compiles, and disseminates information on aquaculture; 4. Encourages joint programs among Federal agencies in areas of mutual interest relating to aquaculture; and 5. Recommends specific actions on issues, problems, plans, and programs in aquaculture. Note: We are not requesting information as part of ongoing regulatory process. Although this will be a discussion of stakeholder issues of concern, it is not formal public input on regulations, as the IWGA is not a regulatory body. More information is available at http://www.ars.usda.gov/iwga.
