Our region stands in the midst of a fascinating paradox – the Gulf of Maine is the second fastest warming body of water in the world, but according to recent economic research, aquaculture – traditionally dependent on the Gulf’s rich, cold water – is one of the top three industries for growth potential in our state.
On Tuesday, June 28 Dan Devereaux, Brunswick Marine Resource Officer & Harbormaster will talk about his decades of observations of change in our local shellfishing industries. He will also describe the innovative approaches he and the Brunswick Marine Resources Committee are leading to help keep the local shellfishing heritage intact and our local shellfishing communities vibrant.
This event has an On the Water follow up: On July 16th at 2:30 and 3:30 pm Dan will also be leading a tour of the Town of Brunswick municipal aquaculture demonstration beds. Click HERE for more information about that event.
This event is part of our ongoing series, A Local Look at Our Changing Climate, in collaboration with the Cathance River Education Alliance (CREA). This series explores the local impacts of a changing climate, as well as local solutions and adaptations as seen by your neighbors and in your own back yard.
Venue: Topsham Public Library
