Noah C. Boldt

Noah Boldt is a Research Associate on the Seafood Economic Analysis and Marketing Research (SEAMaR) team at the Virginia Seafood Agricultural Research and Extension Center. His research focuses on analyzing the economic impact of the aquaculture industry in the United States using farm-level data. He earned his B.S. in Agricultural Operations Management from the University of Florida in 2019. He earned three minors, was heavily involved in his college as an ambassador, member of the leadership institute, and gained valuable work experience abroad in Australia working on yellowtail kingfish nutrition trials. After graduation, he earned his M.S. at the UF Tropical Aquaculture Laboratory in Ruskin, Florida. There he studied the regulatory impacts on the ornamental aquaculture industry in Florida by censusing farmers around the state. Noah is looking forward to applying his understanding of production practices and experience working with farmers to develop an economic impact of aquaculture across a variety of commodity groups throughout the country. In his spare time, Noah enjoys traveling to visit friends and family and officiating youth lacrosse in the area.
