The initaitive is concerned with many areas of aquaculture including catfish, East Coast shellfish, hybrid striped bass, tilapia, and ornamental tropical fish. Noah focused on ornamental tropical fish, connecting with farmers in the Tampa Bay area to seek out regulatory inefficiencies in production processes and provide an economic analysis of farm functions.
