The Seaweed Scene 2013

The Seaweed Scene is a meeting to network with colleagues, catch up on the latest in research and development, and to help plan the future for seaweed science, management and industry. 

The Seaweed Scene 2013 was held on August 29th from 9am to 4pm at the University of Maine's Hutchinson Center, in Belfast, Maine.  The day included presentations from science and industry experts, plenty of time for networking, and facilitated discussion to cover the important topics for the future of aquaculture and harvest of marine macroalgae.   

Using Temperature Data from the Maine Shellfish Monitoring Program to Help in Siting Shellfish Aquaculture Farms

Developed by Maine Sea Grant and Maine Department of Marine Resources

WHAT temperature data are available from the Maine Dept. of Marine Resources?
The Maine Dept. of Marine Resources records shoreline temperatures along the entire coastline, through its water quality sampling program and the volunteer phytoplankton monitoring program. These data are available upon request. This page is designed to help current and prospective aquaculturists access this data, for consideration in siting their farms.
