SC Aquaculture Association

The South Carolina Aquaculture Association (SCAA) was organized in 1989 for the purpose of conducting activities beneficial to the production, promotion and marketing of aquaculture in South Carolina.

This producer-oriented association encompasses all areas of the industry. Membership includes producers, suppliers, educators, technical support, regulatory agencies, government representatives and interested individuals. The seven member Board of Directors, elected by members, is structured to represent the broad-based association.

The goals of this non-profit group are to unite all segments of the aquaculture community and to serve as an umbrella organization to represent mutual interests. SCAA regularly addresses industry issues and concerns, such as marketing, regulation, education, legislation, technology and research, and the environment.
