Responsible Seafood Farming: A Fish, Seaweed, and Invertebrate Recipe

Sea State Lectures
7:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Our continuing free public Joan M. Kelly Sea State lecture series is a unique educational opportunity, bringing world-renowned experts from our region and beyond to GMRI for one evening each month. Past topics have included right whales, bluefin tuna, climate change, and the future of the cod fishery in New England. We hope you will join us as we continue exploring the diversity of the Gulf of Maine ecosystem with this season's topic, "Amazing Algae."

In tomorrow’s food production systems, aquaculture will have an increasing share. However, the Blue Revolution needs to become the greener Turquoise Revolution by developing innovative technologies and practices with increased environmental sustainability, economic stability and societal acceptability. Thierry Chopin, Scientific Director, Canadian Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture Network, will tell us more about the technologies and practices currently in place, as well as what needs to be done to ensure our consumption has a sustainable future.

Seating is limited. Please register below, or contact Sarah Longley at or (207) 228-1699 with any questions.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the lecture will begin at 7:00. Free parking is available.
