Researchers Featured in Hatchery International Article on Salmon Embryos

University of Maine researchers Heather Hamlin and LeeAnne Thayer were featured in the Hatchery International article, “Saving salmon embryos.” Hamlin, and assistant professor of aquaculture, and Thayer, a Ph.D. candidate in UMaine’s School of Marine Sciences, have been exploring the causes of reduced survival rates of Atlantic salmon embryos, according to the article. “When I came to Maine it was the first problem I wanted to tackle due to its relevance and importance to Maine’s economy,” Hamlin said.
