Times Record features Nixon’s aquaculture research and business

The Times Record featured Matt Nixon, Ph.D. candidate at the University of Maine and owner Muddy River Farm Aquaponics, and his work in designing the world’s first 3D-printed, closed-loop, oyster-farming tank made from sustainable materials, the prototype of which was printed at UMaine. “Muddy River farm is the first company in the state to use this business model, but I certainly won’t be the last given the trajectory of our marine resources industry as a whole and the problems compounding all working waterfronts in the state. I look forward to many years working together to bring well-paying jobs, marine biotechnology and 3D manufacturing to the city,” Nixon said.
