You might not guess that Michigan is a haven for seafood, since we’re so far from the ocean, but Michigan has long had thriving commercial fisheries, and aquaculture of fish and shrimp has grown by leaps and bounds in the last thirty years. So, what does the future hold for the state’s seafood industry? That’s the focus of the first annual Michigan Seafood Summit taking place tomorrow at MSU’s Kellogg Conference Center.
Current State speaks with summit organizer and director of Michigan Sea Grant Jim Diana about seafood in the Great Lakes state.
