Farming in Water: UMaine Scientists Use Technology to Find Best Aquaculture Sites
Darling Marine Center researchers are using buoys, sensors and other technology on the Damariscotta and other rivers in order to determine what factors are most important in establishing the best aquaculture sites. It is anticipated that the collected research data will result in establishing optimum aquaculture sites more quickly and decrease economic risk to fisherman. The Darling project is a part of a five-year $20 million National Science Foundation project and the Experimental Program to stimulate Competiitve Research (EPSCoR). A graph illustrating the American/European Oyster Aquaculture harvest in Maine, 2013-15 is presented. [image, graph]
