The UWSP-NADF has been working collaboratively for many years with Ashland, Bayfield and Washburn Schools to develop Aquaculture/Aquaponics Programs for many different grade levels.
 The UWSP-NADF staff provides technical assistance, supplies, and fish to assist the dedicated teachers that are introducing aquaculture and aquaponics to the next generation of aquaculturists. Pictures show students from Bayfield School (above) and Washburn school (below) with their aquaponics systems.

UWSP-NADF has collaborated with the Bayfield County Economic Development Corporation (BCEDC) and UW-Extension as well as local school districts to help support aquaponics and aquaculture education. Donations have been awarded to both Bayfield and Washburn schools by BCEDC which is a starting point to future funding from grants and organizations for the schools. Grants will be able to fund the schools in terms of equipment, curriculum enhancement, travel for tours of both UWSP-NADF and UWSP-Aquaponics Innovation Center as well as further education in internships, workshops or hands on training.

Aquaponics at UW-Stevens Point:

Through a partnership with aquaculture industry leader, Nelson & Pade, Inc., Montello WI, UW-Stevens Point established the nation’s first Aquaponics Innovation Center, college aquaponics courses, and International Aquaponics Society that brings over 250 people to Wisconsin annually for job training and business commercialization.
