Abstract/ Summary

The research priorities survey has been an ongoing initiative coordinated by the Maine Aquaculture Innovation Center in collaboration with Maine Aquaculture Association, Maine Sea Grant, and the University of Maine’s Aquaculture Research Institute since 2012. This report is based on the research priorities survey conducted in June 2019 of Maine’s aquaculture community, and is compared with surveys from 2012 and 2016 to look at trends.

There have been some changes in the prioritization of needs since 2016, but many of the same research, development, and education (R&D&E) needs persist and remain unaddressed. As expected, there are different R&D&E priorities for different aquaculture sectors.
