Truesdell’s dissertation research focuses on harvester effort in the federal scallop fishery. Data from highly mobile and scattered harvesters can lead to misinterpretation of fishery statistics. In Maine, where some areas have been closed to scallop fishing, harvesters are redistributing effort, potentially clouding assessment efforts even further. Sea Grant funds are supporting Truesdell’s travel to present his research at the 18th International Pectinid Workshop in Qingdao, China. Truesdell is a Sea Grant/NOAA Fisheries Graduate Fellow in Marine Population Dynamics.

Sea Grant funds: $2,000
