Abstract/ Summary

National Science Foundation (NSF) advances excellence in science and engineering research and education in Maine. Two NSF EPSCoR grants are currently underway in our state, and I’d like to take this opportunity to highlight some of our recent achievements.

SEANET consists of 42 faculty members, 90 undergraduate students, 43 graduate students, and 3 Ph.D. candidates, who are engaged in aquaculture research at 11 institutions across the state. Recent accomplishments include:
• Successful National Science Foundation (NSF) site visit completed in August 2017, which reviewed the project against plans and objectives
• SEANET faculty and students have been highly productive, with 59 publications and 128 conference presentations reported in Year 3
• Follow-on grants totaling $7,691,243 awarded since the beginning of the grant in 2014
