When infant oysters began dying off in record numbers, reportedly due to the increased acidification of Pacific Northwest waters, the Washington State Legislature asked the UW Dept of Oceanography’s scientists for help. Parker MacCready, PhD, a physical oceanographer and led a team that used quantities of data to forecast the chemistry of ocean waters entering shellfish growing areas, such as Padilla Bay.

A presentation entitled “Ocean Acidification and Midcoast Maine Estuaries” is being offered Thursday, Jan. 14 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.at the Damariscotta River Association’s Round Top Farm at 3 Round Top Lane, Damariscotta. The presentation is the result of an on-going partnership between the University of Maine’s Darling Marine Center and an alliance of local water monitoring organizations called the Maine Coastal Observing Alliance (MCOA).
MCOA is a collaboration among volunteer supported organizations and researchers along the coast of Maine. The Alliance promotes the common interests of groups actively involved in monitoring Maine’s estuaries and coastal watersheds in order to understand and promote the ecological health of these systems. MCOA partners are Boothbay Regional Land Trust, Damariscotta River Association, Friends of Casco Bay, Georges River Land Trust, Hurricane Island Foundation, Kennebec Estuary Land Trust, Medomak Valley Land Trust, Rockport Conservation Commission and Sheepscot Valley Conservation Association (now Midcoast Conservancy).
