DV-17-18 Growth and physiological sensitivity of early stage Gulf of Maine crustaceans in response to ocean warming

Temperature is the primary factor that determines survival and development in newly hatched crustaceans such as lobster. The ability of these early stages to develop in the face of increasingly warm ocean conditions will determine what species are able to maintain populations in the Gulf of Maine over the course of the next century.

Recently, small field stations spanning the Gulf of Maine formed the Northeastern Coastal Stations Alliance (NeCSA) in order to leverage the potential for collaborative data collection and data sharing across the stations, and to enhance training opportunities and public outreach to communicate the implications of environmental change in the Gulf of Maine.
