Eddy quoted in Undercurrent News article on Maine oysters

Steve Eddy, director of the Center for Cooperative Aquaculture Research at the University of Maine, was quoted in the Undercurrent News article, “Oysters, not lobsters, are leading seafood growth from Maine thanks to ‘insatiable’ demand.” The oyster trend has been building for several years, while Maine’s lobster supply declined during the last two years, according to the article. Besides entrepreneurs that are willing to invest in seaweed, sea scallop and oyster farms, Maine has received an influx of families who seek to invest in small-plot agriculture and aquaculture farms, the article states. The seafood wannabes are helped by Maine’s unrivaled brand as a purveyor of fresh, high-quality seafood, Undercurrent News reported. “The Maine mystique is known for high quality,” Eddy said.
