Joseph Hankins, Director of The Conservation Fund’s Freshwater Institute will give a talk on land-based salmon aquaculture. The Freshwater Institute, located in West Virginia, is an internationally recognized research and consulting program focused on water reuse technology in food production. He will talk about why a national land conservation organization is involved in Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS), describe the technology, the Institute's focus on sustainability, and the status of their research and collaborative projects.
Joe joined The Conservation Fund in 1992 to develop aquaculture, sustainable rural economic development, and technology outreach in Appalachia. Today he leads an internationally recognized research and consulting program focused on water reuse technology in food production. He is known for bringing a biologist’s eye and an entrepreneur’s passion to the modern issues in conservation. 
In addition to his work at the Freshwater Institute, Joe serves as an Officer of the Natural Capital Investment Fund. He is active in local and regional work-groups focused on the strategic importance of water, community water infrastructure planning, and life cycle assessment. 
Joe holds an M.S. in Environmental Biology from Hood College and a B.S. in General Science from Purdue University.
