There are many organizations in Maine - private, non-profit and public institutions - that are involved in aquaculture work. From R&D to technology transfer to business development. This forum is an opportunity for individual donors, foundations, and private investors to better understand the current landscape of aquaculture in Maine and identify potential opportunities for support and investment.
