Why Collaborations to Rear Larvae Fail

THE NEAq Experience

Attempt #1 Collaborations with commercial companies

-- No information sharing

-- No desire to truly collaborate

-- Unwillingness to fund research

Attempt #2 Collaboration with Universities

-- Requires support at the highest levels

-- Lack of hard-dollar support staff

-- Lack of support funding

-- No dedicated space
