Morse Quoted in BDN Article on Maine Sea Farms
Dana Morse, a Maine Sea Grant researcher who works at the University of Maine’s Darling Marine Center, was quoted in the Bangor Daily News article, “How Maine’s sea farms could be key to feeding the world.” The article argues that Atlantic salmon could be Maine’s farm-raised lobster. Morse said while production of Maine shellfish such as mussels and oysters has been growing, Atlantic salmon brings in the most money for fish farmers. In 2010, blue mussels and American oysters were valued at $1.3 million and $1.7 million, respectively. Meanwhile, Atlantic salmon was valued at $73.5 million in 2010, the article states.
