Talk – Let’s Get Engaged: Extending Marine Science Research to Maine People
October 15, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm| Free
Speaker: Gayle Zydlewski, Director, Maine Sea Grant
Gayle recently assumed the role as Director of the Maine Sea Grant College Program while retaining her faculty appointment with the School of Maine Sciences. Her research interests and experiences focus on interdisciplinary approaches to understanding how research results can be used by natural resource managers and others while making decisions associated with environmental impacts on natural (or artificially-enhanced) populations of fishes. She will share her research perspectives and how those interests intersect with Maine Sea Grant’s mission: to support the responsible use and conservation of coastal resources in order to sustain thriving coastal communities and ecosystems and highlight Maine Sea Grant’s approaches to implementing Sea Grant’s focus areas: sustainable fisheries and aquaculture, healthy coastal ecosystems, resilient communities and economies, and environmental literacy and workforce development.
