Recognizing an increased demand for scientific and technical information about current issues facing coastal communities, and a concomitant fragmentation of media outlets, the Island Institute and Maine Sea Grant are collaborating on a new science feature in The Working Waterfront newspaper and associated electronic publications. Each month, Island Institute and Maine Sea Grant staff work collaboratively to produce a carefully researched, accurate, and up-to-date article on topics of interest to coastal and island residents. The new column, Fathoming, digs deep into the science behind the headlines. This one-year pilot project leveraged the broad reach of the Island Institute’s publications and Sea Grant’s extensive science translation and communication resources.
