Townsend speaks to Scientific American about fish farms

David Townsend, professor of oceanography at the School of Marine Sciences at the University of Maine, was interviewed by Scientific American about fish farming in Maine. Townsend said that the state has two important attributes for fish cultivation: cold, nutrient-rich water and extremely vigorous tides that distribute those nutrients throughout the water column. “Our coastal waters are very productive,” he said.
