Faculty Fellow Les Kaufman Quoted in Boston Globe Article
Pardee Faculty Fellow Les Kaufman was quoted in the Boston Globe on July 13th in an article titled “In a briny preserve, fish and controversy thrive“. The article highlights the current controversy over commercial fishing in the Gulf of Maine, a once thriving habitat that has experienced significant declines in fish populations in recent years. Prof. Kaufman and others argue that protecting species such as cod and mollusks in the 550 square mile area off of Caches Ledge is important to rebuilding the ecosystem.
