This year’s educational event will be a tour of Hampton Virginia’s historic working waterfront led by VIMS’ Commercial Fisheries and Seafood Technology Specialist, Bob Fisher. The tour will include L.D. Amory & Company, founded in 1917, which buys, processes and sells wholesale fish and Graham & Rollins, which was founded in 1942 as a crab processing company. We will also have the opportunity to tour the VA Tech Virginia Seafood Agricultural Research and Extension Center. We will meet in the Hampton Marina Hotel Lobby to start the tour at 3 PM on Thursday, March 12, 2020.
