STATEWIDE, Maine — Congressman Mike Michaud announced that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has awarded $574,028 to scientists at the University of Maine for a three year project to investigate methods that would provide early warning detection of harmful algal blooms, also known as red tides, in the Gulf of Maine. Research will be carried out at the University of Maine in partnership with the Maine Department of Marine Resources Biotoxin Monitoring Program. The project could pave the way to similar projects in other regions affected by harmful algal blooms. For more information, call Ed Gilman at 225-6306.
