September 15-17, Albuquerque:

US: 12th Annual Aquaponics Conference held in Albuquerque

Albuquerque, New Mexico, is the place to be when the 12th Annual Aquaponics Conference hits town from September 15 through 17, 2023. With more than 60 speakers, 15+ vendors, and hundreds of attendees expected, Aquaponics Association Executive Director Josh Dusci says the three-day event qualifies as the largest aquaponics conference in the world!

Expanding speaker lineup
If you’re interested in aquaponics, hydroponics, or CEA in general, the speaker lineup at this event has something for you. Here are just three of the dozens of industry experts sharing aquaponic insights and inspiration this year:

  • Dr. Steve Summerfelt, Chief Science Officer at Hixton, Wisconsin’s Superior Fresh, LLC, will present the Saturday banquet keynote, “Growing Healthy Food in a Regenerative Farming Model at Superior Fresh.”
  • Charlie Shultz, Academic Director of the Controlled Environment Agriculture Program at Santa Fe Community College, will be presenting “Creating a Sustainable Educational Pipeline for the CEA Workforce through a Remote Dual-Credit High School to College Model.”
  • Dr. John Derksen, Chair of the Aquaculture Centre of Lethbridge College in Alberta, Canada, will be on hand presenting “Aquaponics Microcredentials – Self Tailored Learning From Anywhere.”

And the list of researchers, teachers, and commercial aquaponic growers slated to speak, spanning everything from ornamentals to cannabis, continues to grow.

Pre-conference workshop
A one-day pre-conference workshop is happening at Santa Fe Community College on September 14. Be there, and you’ll have an exclusive learning opportunity for hands-on and classroom training to gain and strengthen aquaponic production skills.
