Program Leadership

As a fundamentally collaborative effort, MREP for Aquaculture is guided by a steering committee consisting of members from across the aquaculture community, scientists, managers, and educators. MREP is administered by the Gulf of Maine Research Institute and delivered by the program planning team which handles all aspects of program design and communications.
