Ellsworth American publishes UMaine release on SEANET grants

The Ellsworth American adapted a University of Maine news release on grants for Down East aquaculture research. The grants from Maine EPSCoR’s Sustainable Ecological Aquaculture Network (SEANET) will fund two projects in Washington County to investigate the effects of environmental change and management policies on Atlantic sea scallops and soft-shell clams. SEANET’s goal is to create a network of researchers to inform the regulators, investors and members of the public on sustainable aquaculture, and SEANET will also support marine sciences in Washington County through education and outreach initiatives, the release states.
