The blue economy and our maritime heritage are vital, as is our stewardship of this amazing coastal environment, and that is why I have been so supportive of the UMass Amherst Gloucester Marine Station - including securing $200,000 for it in the latest state budget. This research, learning, and training facility brings staff and students to the North Shore’s marine and coastal systems and in turn engages public-private partnerships that are unlocking applications for our region and far beyond. 

The Open House was a celebration of the rich history, successes, and investment strategy of this coastal research facility and the advances made in microbiology, fisheries, and coastal ecology.
