From Robert Whitcomb’s “Digital Diary,’’ in GoLocal24.com

Bren Smith is an “ocean farmer’’ at the Thimble Islands, along the coast of Branford, Conn. He grows kelp, mussels, oysters and clams, in a model example of highly sustainable aquaculture. His new book is Eat Like a Fish: My Adventures as a Fisherman Turned Restorative Ocean Farmer. There are some good ideas there for aquaculturalists around New England.
