Description

In February 1999 an ad hoc committee of representatives of Maine’s shellfish aquaculture industry, The University of Maine, and the Maine Sea Grant College Program met to discuss priorities for research to improve the performance of tidally powered shellfish upwellers. Information from this meeting was incorporated into a proposal submitted later in the year to the Maine Aquaculture Innovation Center. The project was funded and work began in January 2000. The project involved engineering analysis, field measurements of shellfish seed properties, and scale-model testing conducted in the university wave/towing tank with the overall goal of optimizing the design of a tidal upweller used for nursery production of oyster and hard clam seed. This report describes the model-testing compone
