Lobsters topic of Science Cafe



MOUNT DESERT — Richard Wahle from the University of Maine School of Marine Sciences addressed the first Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory Science Café gathering at the Asticou Inn on June 22. His talk covered the effects of ocean acidification, varying water temperatures and ocean current movement on the spread of lobster larvae and population growth. Due to the cold water current moving southwards along the coast of Maine, lobster larvae are carried along to the waters off MDI, bringing an abundance of the famous red crustaceans.
