Marine biologist Heather Hamlin speaks about her research on the effects of climate change and ocean acidification on lobster development, populations, and fisheries.
Part of the Spring talk series
As the earth’s climate changes, more carbon dioxide is present in our oceans. In this presentation, Dr. Heather Hamlin speaks about her research on how lower water pH affects lobsters’ life cycle, what it could mean for Maine’s lobster industry, and predicting long-term trends on acidification in the Gulf of Maine.
Dr. Heather Hamlin is an Associate Professor in the School of Marine Sciences at the University of Maine. She studies how changes in the environment impact the health of economically important aquatic species.
