Collaborative Chats – 2020

Maine Sea Grant, the Maine Department of Marine Resources, and the University of Maine’s Lobster Institute hosted a series of webinars focusing on collaborative research efforts in the lobster industry. We discussed what works and what doesn’t, and strategized on how to make collaborative research a priority.
