Maine to Get $ 2M for Gulf of Maine Lobster Research

Two million dollars in federal funds will help fund a wide range of Gulf of Maine research projects aimed at advancing the understanding of the American lobster and create a regional lobster extension program.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Sea Grant College Program will allocate the funds, according to members of Maine’s congressional delegation.

Among the projects to receive funding are research on lobster migration and growth, early biology, and on increasing understanding of a lobster’s life cycle.
