Shellfish landings are a significant contributor to Maine’s economy: in 2015, the value of landings from clams, mussels, and oysters was more than $29 million dollars according to the Maine Department of Marine Resources. This value could be even higher if we addressed threats to the resource, such as the predatory milky ribbon worm.

Recently, small field stations spanning the Gulf of Maine formed the Northeastern Coastal Stations Alliance (NeCSA) in order to leverage the potential for collaborative data collection and data sharing across the stations, and to enhance training opportunities and public outreach to communicate the implications of environmental change in the Gulf of Maine.
