De-Risking Investments in Aquatic Farming

Closing Date: August 16th, 2024

The Alaska Fisheries Development Foundation (AFDF) is soliciting proposals from individuals, companies, or organizations, as part of a program designed to “de-risk” investments in the Alaska mariculture industry by funding a modeling and/or data collection study to support the mariculture industry in selecting appropriate sites and right-sizing equipment. Through this competitive RFP process, AFDF will select, and fund proposal(s) related to ocean modeling, and data collection proposed by businesses, universities, independent researchers, or other eligible organizations. Findings and data from these projects will be compiled into reports and distributed to the public, ensuring benefits are available to all current or future industry participants, and the public in general. Projects may be funded up to $1,200,000 and must be completed by August 31, 2026
