Texas Aquaculture Association (TAA)

The Texas Aquaculture Association (TAA) was founded in 1988. It evolved from the combination of the Catfish Farmers of Texas and the Crawfish Farmers of Texas in addition to others pursuing an aquaculture related business. Through dedication and hard work the organization has continued to grow along with the entire aquaculture industry. Today, TAA is an alliance of entities with an interest in aquaculture spanning the commercial production of channel catfish, shrimp, hybrid striped bass, red drum, tilapia, baitfish, ornamental and tropical fish, stocker fish, and ornamental plants as well as pond and lake management.
The role of the association is to provide an exchange of information and to act as a voice for the Texas aquaculture industry in dealing with federal and state regulatory agencies. TAA strives to assist its membership in a variety of ways. The annual conference provides networking between all units from the farmer to the retailer including vendors and suppliers along with broadening the education of the consumer.
