Balancing wild fisheries, sustainable aquaculture, and other coastal activities can assist the state of Maine, the nation, and the world in feeding a growing population, and creating employment and economic development. Maine EPSCoR and the Aquaculture Research Institute at the University of Maine has received a 5 year, $20 million grant from the National Science foundation (NSF) to establish the Sustainable Ecological Aquaculture Network (SEANET) to research opportunities in sustainable aquaculture which can be deployed on the coast of Maine and nationwide.
SEANET will advance understanding of sustainable ecological aquaculture systems (SEAS) by promoting a statewide collaborative network of faculty, post-docs, students, and industry leaders.
