Darling Marine Center scientist receives promotion, Boothbay Register reports

Boothbay Register published a University of Maine Darling Marine Center news release announcing the promotion of Damian Brady, a faculty member in the School of Marine Sciences and based at the DMC in Walpole. Brady, who has been promoted to associate professor with tenure, was one of 34 UMaine faculty to receive tenure and/or promotion this spring. Since 2010, Brady has been monitoring water quality along the coast of Maine. He and his team of undergraduate and graduate students help oyster farmers find new sustainable places to locate farms by sharing information from coastal observing buoys, satellites, and models of current speed and direction, according to the article. The information also is being used for water quality management, wild fisheries, and new and emerging aquaculture species, like sea scallops. Brady works directly with farmers, landowners and regulatory agencies to protect water quality along Maine’s coast, the article states.
