The Texas Aquaculture Association (TAA) is a member-based organization that provides a platform for education, collaboration, and advocacy for the aquaculture industry. Our members are involved directly or indirectly in the commercial production and sale of aquatic organisms, including shrimp, crawfish, oysters, catfish, redfish, tilapia, hybrid striped bass, baitfish, sport fish, ornamental fish, plants and algae. While primarily composed of producers, TAA membership also includes pond and lake managers, suppliers to the industry, researchers, educators, students, and those involved in regulating the industry. Working together, the membership enables TAA to be an effective grass-roots voice for the support of a successful and sustainable industry.
