WVII Interviews Grad Student About Lobster Shell Research

WVII (Channel 7) interviewed University of Maine graduate student Beth Fulton about her research on using lobster shell waste to create a pigment extract as a green alternative to synthetic versions found in fish food. Fulton decided to find more uses for discarded lobster shells because it is “a large-volume material that has no value, aside from composting which is done on a minimal scale.” She said the project is still in the early stages, but she has laid the groundwork for the study to continue.
