County of Applicant:

The purpose of this Golden LEAF grant is to continue support for efforts to develop freshwater Southern flounder farms. Development of these farms will create new opportunities for farmers to pursue aquaculture in inland counties. These funds will be used to improve the flavor profile of farm-raised flounder and support genetic mapping of the strain of flounder developed by North Carolina State University researchers.
