A New Website for the New Year
The website is the heart of our platform – a powerful resource, packed with information – but at more than 20 years old, it was showing its age. When we launched it, it was a pioneer, the first of its kind in our industry. We were all new to the internet back then, but within just a few weeks we were getting hundreds, and then thousands of visitors. Up to today, close to a million different people have visited the website. 
We’ve updated and patched, but eventually even the best loved jacket has to be replaced. So, we are starting the new year with a completely new, more functional website; we hope you enjoy using it.
For those of you with interests in aquaculture hatchery, we have also launched, a new website to replace Hatcheryfeed. Do visit them both and tell us what you think.
Wishing you a very happy, peaceful and prosperous New Year, and looking forward to seeing many of you next month on Booth #154 at Aquaculture America, in our home town of Honolulu.
Suzi Dominy, Executive Editor/Publisher
