New Session of Aquaculture in Shared Waters Starts January 6th

Beginning on January 6th, CEI will be offering Aquaculture in Shared Waters—a practical hands on aquaculture course offered to fishermen from a team representing CEI, University of Maine faculty, Sea Grant associates, Maine Aquaculture Association, Maine Aquaculture Innovation Center and the Downeast Institute. This year’s course will be offered at our Brunswick office at 30 Federal Street, with the option to live stream classes from the UMaine Hutchinson Center in Belfast. Students enrolled will receive training for kelp and shellfish start-ups.
