US farmers across the country's Midwest learned a little more about aquaculture last week when cowboy broadcaster Trent Loos spotted some fish out of water at the American Feed Industry Association Expo.
The radio host, whose Loos Tales show airs on over 100 stations across the Midwest, spotted a tank of assorted fish, from koi to paddlefish, on the AFIA Aquaculture Committee/Oceanic Institute booth at the AFIAExpo in Kansas City, and was intreagued to know what fishy folk from Hawaii were doing in a feed show in the very center of the country.
Oceanic Institute's Director of Communications and Education, Gary Karr (right) and feed research scientist Dr. Warren Dominy (left) were interviewed for the live broadcast on opportunities in aquaculture, and recorded two more segments for future transmission.
The show was hosted by FeedStuffs and broadcasts will be archived on Loos' website: Faces of Agriculture
