Jul 1, 2007
Lake Mary FL
All, sorry for the delay in a confirmation of our September meeting/event. I'm pleased to announce we will be having a tour of the Leon Raymond Fish Hatchery/ Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute in Carlsbad. I'd like to thank Jeff Saurwein for getting this tour arranged for SDMAS. The tour will be limited to a group of 20-25 for Saturday September 17th at 2pm. If you are interested in attending, please send me a pm and/or reply to this thread. SDMAS card carrying members will get preference. If you would like to bring a guest please mention that as well. Children are ok but they do need to be supervised at all times. There is also strict policy on wearing closed toed shoes or boots for the tour. I will send out an attachment with additional information once I have confirmation of those attending.

Due to limited parking spaces at the hatchery, I will coordinate a meeting spot at my work location in Carlsbad so that our group can carpool to the facility.

Some info about the hatchery: In October of 1995, the Leon Raymond Hubbard, Jr., Marine Fish Hatchery was dedicated as one of southern California's premier aquaculture facilities. Built on land donated by San Diego Gas & Electric on Agua Hedonia Lagoon in Carlsbad, California, this 22,000-square-foot hatchery is an expansion of the successful Ocean Resources Enhancement and Hatchery Program (OREHP) which is restoring the California white seabass population through innovative aquaculture and fishery enhancement techniques developed at HSWRI. The hatchery is capable of producing over 350,000 juvenile white seabass annually.
