MASNA® is proud to announce that with our earnings from raffle contributions at MACNA 2018 for the grand prize Fiji Trip drawing, MASNA is donating $2,500 to the Aquaculture Development for the Environment (A.D.E.) Project.
At MACNA 2018, MASNA operated a raffle program that MACNA attendees were able to enter through the purchase of raffle tickets at the event.
