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.
