On April 6, the Senate Commerce Committee's National Ocean Policy Study Subcommittee held a hearing to examine current proposals to regulate offshore aquaculture operations, discuss research in this field being conducted off the coasts of New England and Hawaii, and explore the impacts that expanded aquaculture operations would have on fishermen, seafood processors, and consumers.
