Drinks with Aquaculture Lawyers | Friday Happy Hour
Getting a handle on the burgeoning aquaculture industry
On this episode of Friday Happy Hour, Tyler Buckingham sits down with ASPNers, Peter Ravella and Thane Tienson, and two of Thane's aquaculture lawyer buds Hallie Templeton and Amy van Saun. Thane is himself the co-council for the Coalition to Protect Puget Sound Habitat. Hallie is the Senior Ocean Campaigner at Friends of the Earth and Amy is the Senior Attorney at the Center for Food Safety. Collectively, they bring us up to speed on what aquaculture is and the many ways industrial methods are being used on the American Shoreline to produce shell and finfish. After a warmup beer (or two) we turn our attention to the regulatory stance that the aquaculture industry has taken before and during the COVID era, and discuss how important is it to manage aquaculture industry as it becomes an increasingly common fixture on the American Shoreline.
