Dr. Ben Twining at the Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences was recently interviewed by Rebecca Fowler on the blog for the Great Belt Research Cruise that recently concluded. In his answers, Ben shares more about what it's really like to be an ocean scientist.

Great Belt Research Cruise Blog: Q&A With Ben Twining
"If you’re interested in oceanography, whether you’re a middle school, high school, or college student, you should go find a way to get involved in it, because your idea of oceanography may not be the reality. I didn’t start college thinking I would be an oceanographer, or even a scientist, it wasn’t until I tried it that I realized yeah, oceanography is for me." -Ben Twining


Dr. Rick Wahle
University of Maine researcher Dr. Rick Wahle was highlighted on the Umaine homepage in this video where he talks about the health of another native species, scallops.
"Scallops are really neck and neck with lobsters in terms of the value of the fishery to New England. It's a huge fishery, especially in Southern NE, George's Bank and so forth. Maine's scallop fishery used to be large, too, but it's been severely depleted by harvesting, as have many of its other fisheries except for lobsters." -Dr. Wahle
