FAF (Florida Aquaculture Foundation) is a nonprofit, 501c3 entity that operates on a mission to promote aquaculture through education and training.  It operates separately and autonomously from Florida Organic Aquaculture (FOA), which is the primary sponsor of the Foundation.

FOA is a business that raises shrimp for market and supply, while FAF functions as an entity designed to help the community in general.

Our belief is that economic empowerment enables people in rural poverty settings to achieve things that will advance their livelihood.  With this in mind, the FAF REAP was developed and works with FOA to offer education and career opportunities primarily in aquaculture.
