Nice article... thanks.
More about aquaculture in oysters, kelp and the like. The report that stood out was that Gulf of Maine waters are warming faster than anywhere on earth, bad for cod recovery after overfishing and, as a result, good for supply of lobsters, at least for the time being.
PS -- saw lots of urchins in the waters around Campobello this summer, but many of the salmon farms had been abandoned.
