Bricknell Quoted in Landings Article on Oxygen, Lobsters

Ian Bricknell, director of the Aquaculture Research Institute at the University of Maine, was quoted in an article about the importance of providing dissolved oxygen to captured lobsters in the Maine Lobstermen’s Community Alliance publication “Landings: News and Views from Maine’s Lobstering Community.” Bricknell also said oxygen that is dissolved by water is important biologically for marine animals such as lobsters, but warmer water and algal blooms can use up that oxygen, leaving little for the animals.
