AFBI - Vision and Purpose

At the AFBI, we believe:

  U.S. aquaculture producers can compete globally, but only with enhanced inventory control, feed efficiency and greater production efficiencies with improved product quality and consistency.   The volume of high quality water available in the southeast US coupled with its favorable climate can support a thriving multi- billion dollar domestic seafood industry by 2030. 

  We can provide insight and innovation to help aquaculture and fishery businesses manage change and opportunity profitably and effectively. We are committed to synergistic linkage with industry collaborators for solving applied aquaculture and fishery industry problems and identifying new opportunities for business growth.

  AFBI is securing financial partnerships and selecting collaborators that will enable the Institute to be supported 100% by extramural dollars and in-kind contributions.
