A trailer tour will feature demonstrations and talks about in-pond fish graders, sock-grading of food-sized catfish, pond management for good fishing, chemical treatments that don't work, and snail control.

A walking tour will offer information about potentially toxic algae, World Wide Web aquaculture sites and how to get the most from the Internet, and the use and maintenance of dissolved oxygen meters.

Dedication of the new value-added product development building and new ponds will begin at 11 a.m. This will be followed by a luncheon at the Agriculture Research Service aquaculture systems pond support building.
