Mainebiz cites UMaine studies in article on warming waters, lobster

Mainebiz cited two 2019 University of Maine studies in the article “Warming Gulf of Maine waters may be stunting lobster growth.” The studies point to the role of a warming ocean and local oceanographic differences in the rise and fall of lobster populations along the coast from southern New England to Atlantic Canada, the article states. One study was led by Noah Oppenheim, who earned a dual master’s degree in marine biology and marine policy at the Darling Marine Center. The other study was led by marine sciences Ph.D. student Andrew Goode.
