Research funding 

WASHINGTON, D.C. U.S. Sens. Susan Collins and Angus King announced that the Gulf of Maine Research Institute (GMRI) has received a total of $1,274,908 from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to conduct research and modeling on climate, economic, ocean and ecosystem changes in the Gulf of Maine and inform fisheries of shifting weather patterns.  

“The Gulf of Maine is currently warming faster than almost any other body of water on Earth,” said the senators in a joint statement.
