Dr. Al Stokes, Director of the Waddell Maricultural Center in Bluffton, recently spoke to the Bluffton Rotary Club about the Aqua Culture Research Center at Waddell and its main focus of seafood reproduction, working all over the world. The research facility has 25 ponds and is currently going through some renovations where they will add their own hatching system; they currently use a hatching system in Charleston. With help from summer interns, the group works with our cobia, blue crabs, shrimp and horseshoe crab populations. Click HERE for more information and or tours.
