TANK TO TABLE (Culinary & Aquaculture)

Our Culinary Arts and Aquaculture instructors will walk students through techniques from growing to cooking their own food. In Aquaculture, students will feed, maintain, and harvest fish and vegetables grown on-site at Ocean Springs High School CTE (Tank). In Culinary Arts, students will use local fresh ingredients to cook and build a menu any chef would be proud of (Table). Please join us for a Culinary Arts and Aquaculture collaboration!
