The talk will be at noon May 21 at Merryspring Nature Center in Camden. Hamlin will discuss her research on how lower water pH affects the life cycle of lobsters and what that could mean for Maine’s lobster industry. She’ll also predict long-term trends of acidification in the Gulf of Maine, the article states.
