Operational funding for NADF is derived from tribal gaming revenue, not Wisconsin taxpayers. Grant and private funding is used to conduct individual research projects.

Funded Projects

 
 
 
 

 

The UW-Stevens Point aquaculture program and NADF has been awarded over $4 million in federal and private grant funds to support and advance Wisconsin Aqua-business (Aquaculture and Aquaponics). These projects involve scientific and technological entrepreneurship that impacts education, applied research, commercialization, new venture creation and regional economic development. Throughout the year, our projects also include tours and technical assistance as well as technical presentations.
