Abstract/ Summary

Farm tourism has been around since the 1800s, when people in urban areas began coming to farms to visit relatives and escape city life. While in the U.S. most farm tourism has involved traditional land-based agriculture, opportunities are increasing for marine aquaculture farmers, too. The benefits of offering "aquatours" include additional income potential, increased brand and product visibility, and consumer education. This fact sheet outlines legal concerns for those interested in incorporating tourism into aquaculture operations.
