Interactive StoryMap: How the American lobster is dealing with a changing environment
American lobsters (Homarus americanus) are resilient creatures, but they are experiencing rapid changes to their ocean environment. Three researchers participating in the Sea Grant American Lobster Initiative (ALI) have pulled together the latest science explaining how warming waters in the Gulf of Maine impact lobsters at all life stages – from egg to adult. Check out the StoryMap they’ve put together.

Boilerplate language about the project
The Sea Grant American Lobster Initiative, funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Sea Grant College Program, is addressing critical knowledge gaps about American lobster and its iconic fishery in a dynamic and changing environment. The initiative, which began in 2019, supports both scientific research and a regional Sea Grant extension program in the Northeast U.S. Together, the research and extension components of this initiative will develop and share new knowledge and understanding with industry stakeholders and resource managers from Maine to New York.
