UMaine Oyster Research Cited In Article

A story in the Portland Press Herald mentioned oyster research at UMaine’s Darling Marine Center and by UMaine Cooperative Extension scientists. According to the story, about the uncertainty of Maine’s oyster fishery in the wake of the discovery of the parasite MSX found in Damariscotta River oysters, the growth of oyster farming on the Damariscotta grew out of research being done 30 years ago at the Darling Center. Chris Davis, who earned a doctorate at UMaine and is now co-owner of Pemaquid Oyster Co. and director of the Maine Aquaculture Innovation Center, was quoted in the story. UMaine Cooperative Extension research into the spread of MSX was also mentioned in the story.
