BDN, Sun Journal promote shellfish fisheries webinar March 18

The Bangor Daily News and the Sun Journal promoted a March 18 webinar, “What’s Changing on the Mudflats? Collecting Knowledge and Data about Changing Clam Flats,” featuring Sarah Risley, a master’s student in the marine science program at the University of Maine’s Darling Marine Center, shellfish harvesters from Maine, and representatives of Maine’s Department of Marine Resources and the Downeast Institute. Natalie Springuel of Maine Sea Grant will host the program. This is the second of three conversations offered as alternatives to the live Shellfish Focus Day at the annual Maine Fishermen’s Forum, which was cancelled due to the pandemic. The webinar will be replayed by WERU radio (89.9 FM in Blue Hill) at 4 p.m. March 26.
