Phytoplankton & Red Tide Lecture

Tuesday August 20, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Kennebec Estuary Land Trust Summer 2019 Lecture Series

Maine Creatures Great & Small: Four Organisms Important to Our State’s Aquatic Habitats

This program will focus on the tiny and impressive creatures that can be found in the billions floating in our coastal waters. Dr. Jelena Godrijan, a scientist at Bigelow Laboratory, will introduce the wonders of phytoplankton, sharing information on their types, impacts, and distribution in the Gulf of Maine and across the globe. Bryant Lewis, from the Maine Department of Marine Resources, will introduce the plankton species that produce toxins, causing red tide events that can make shellfish unsafe to eat. He will share information about when and where these species appear in the Gulf of Maine and how the state tracks these species to protect public health.

Let us know you’ll be joining the talk! Sign up by calling 207-442-8400.
