Website Carries News on Seaweed Pilot Project

The website Physorg carried a news release about a pilot program coordinated by the UMaine-based Maine Sea Grant and UMaine Cooperative Extension to start a demonstration hatchery where a species of seaweed would be grown along with mussels. The project is an example of Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture (IMTA), which is believed to reduce the environmental impacts of commercial aquaculture systems.
