The awards recognize individuals, businesses and organizations from each state and province bordering the Gulf of Maine for their innovation, creativity and commitment to protecting the marine environment. For more than 40 years, Townsend has studied the biological oceanography of the Gulf of Maine and other coastal seas, particularly the physical-biological coupling of phytoplankton, zooplankton and larval fishes.
