Aquaculture producers seeking to diversify their businesses through direct marketing will encounter a confusing, and at times contradictory, maze of federal, state, and local food safety, tax, and environmental laws. The legal framework for direct sales of aquaculture products is further complicated by the differing treatment of freshwater and marine species, both of which are cultured in Alabama. To assist Alabama producers looking for ways to diversify their business through direct marking, NSGLC prepared a Legal Guide for Direct Marketing Aquaculture Products in Alabama to support aquaculture producers in Alabama and organized a series of workshops and webinars to increase knowledge and awareness of legal requirements. By the end of December 2014, over 360 individuals have received information about how aquaculture producers in Alabama can diversify their businesses through direct marketing opportunities and manage their legal risks when doing so.
