Centre College Students Tour the Aquaculture Research Center

Over a dozen freshman students from Centre College located in Danville Kentucky toured the Aquaculture Research Center. During their tour, they visited the hatchery, genetics lab, and the indoor recirculating systems in the Production and Technologies Building. Ken Thompson led the tour, Thomas Delomas explained the genetics research conducted at KSU and Janelle Hager gave an overview of aquaponics. Adam Cecil and Paul Auberry explained the system they are building to conduct shrimp research in the near future. Overall it was a great tour and the students left knowing much more about aquaculture and what KSU has to offer.
