Media report on UMaine Sustainable Aquaculture Workforce and Innovation Center

The Bangor Daily News, Maine Public and WFVX-TV (Fox 22/ABC 7 in Bangor) reported that the University of Maine is designing an aquaculture center on campus that would expand research and provide workforce training to meet growing industry needs in the state, which will be called the Sustainable Aquaculture Workforce and Innovation Center. “What we’ve heard from the aquaculture industry is that they would like students to be trained on systems that resemble what they actually have in place. Our facility will be much smaller, but it will give students hands-on, technical experience,” said Deborah Bouchard, director of UMaine’s Aquaculture Research Institute.
