Former Island Scholar and Island Institute intern, Julia Maine, was recently interviewed about the allure of aquaculture and the opportunities it offers.

The Chebeague Island native and science educator wants to show community members the bounty that can come from sea farms and is the driving force (along with her mom, geologist Carol White) behind the first Chebeague Island Aquaculture Festival, slated for this summer.
