Ellsworth American reports on outreach efforts of Sea Grant, Extension
The Ellsworth American noted efforts of Maine Sea Grant and University of Maine Cooperative Extension in a story about seafood harvesters directly marketing their catch. Maine Sea Grant recently sent a flyer to oyster growers with advice about directly marketing their shellfish online, at farm stands or farmers’ markets, or at their farms. UMaine Extension has a website that includes a comprehensive list of farm products and pick-ups around the state, as well as a link to the Local Catch Network founded by University of Maine assistant professor of marine policy Joshua Stoll. Local Catch includes a Seafood Finder map so people can pinpoint where they can buy fresh lobster, scallops, clams, crabs and more from one of 537 sources in North America.
