DV-17-18 Growth and physiological sensitivity of early stage Gulf of Maine crustaceans in response to ocean warming

David Fields
Senior Research Scientist
Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences
East Boothbay, ME

Temperature is the primary factor that determines survival and development in newly hatched crustaceans such as lobster. The ability of these early stages to develop in the face of increasingly warm ocean conditions will determine what species are able to maintain populations in the Gulf of Maine over the course of the next century.
