Student Co-Authors Article on Availability of Bait

Maddelyn Harden, a UMaine marine science student, was listed as a co-author on an article in Working Waterfront newspaper about how restrictions on the herring fishery may lead lobstermen to search for alternative bait sources, which could lead to impacts on lobster health, human health, public perception and the marine ecosystem. Catherine Schmitt, the communications coordinator for the UMaine-based Maine Sea Grant, is also a co-author on the report with Heather Deese, the Island Institute’s vice president of programs.
