Boothbay Register highlights Steneck’s award, career

The Boothbay Register published a media release from the Darling Marine Center about Bob Steneck, who received the University of Maine Presidential Research and Creative Achievement Award. The internationally recognized marine ecologist’s expertise ranges from coral reefs and kelp forests to fisheries and marine conservation and management. Newsweek, The New York Times, The New Yorker, Atlantic Monthly, National Geographic, Vogue and National Public Radio have highlighted his research. “Never before have we needed marine scientists more, in order to keep our fingers on the pulse of our rapidly changing ocean,” says the professor based at the DMC in Walpole. “Nowhere is this more important than the Gulf of Maine, where we see weather, climate change and invasive species rapidly changing the ecosystem and the economic landscape.”
