Sustainable Fisheries and Aquaculture staff with Coastal Enterprises, Inc. (CEI) address the needs of Maine’s working waterfront interests through several programmatic initiatives, one of which is leveraging Maine’s longstanding relationship with our Japanese sister prefecture, Aomori. Sea Grant funds supported travel of CEI to Japan to accelerate transfer of their sea scallop aquaculture technology to Maine. CEI is prepared to invest in Maine businesses that commercialize this technology.
