Stockton Aquarium and Aquaculture Club
Meetings: Every other Thursday, 4:30 p.m.
Meetings for fall semester will begin September 26, 2019
The purpose of this organization is to provide a friendly and safe environment for aquarium hobbyists to get together and share, as well as learn, about different topics in aquatic husbandry and aquaculture in both the private and public sector. One of our goals is to also promote aquatic husbandry and aquaculture through outreach and educational events as well as research. The SAAC is also a place for students, faculty and staff who have never kept or maintained aquariums but are interested, to have access to this source of knowledge to help them get into the hobby and field. The club will connect students to internship, job and research opportunities in aquarium sciences as well as in aquaculture.
