Why Support ARI?

Since 2009, ARI has been conducting innovative research and outreach programs to deliver:

  • Unbiased science to help inform policymakers, aquaculturists, and citizens.
  • Hands-on research and educational opportunities for high school, undergraduate and graduate students.
  • Innovative technology and services to help advance the industry in an informed and sustainable manner.

Your support is an investment in educating the next generation of aquaculture scientists and is essential to the future of aquaculture education at the University of Maine.  Specifically, your donation will support ARI’s Undergraduate Aquaculture Internship Program which pairs undergraduates with stakeholders to address research questions relevant to the sector. 

Thank you for your support of ARI’s student interns who will help drive Maine’s new aquaculture economy.
