Marine Research Hatchery
DEI operates the state’s first – and only – public shellfish hatchery. Our Center for Shellfish Production and Research specializes in raising juvenile shellfish for fisheries stock enhancement and for research purposes. To do so, we also produce food for the shellfish thorugh our stock microalgal (phytoplankton) culture system and mass algal growout system.
To order shellfish seed or discuss DEI’s Marine Research Hatchery operations or capabilities, please contact Kyle Pepperman at (207) 259-5048 or email@example.com.

If DEI’s main research campus is your destination, continue down the hill until you see a sign for Downeast Institute on your right, at the entrance to Wildflower Lane. Follow Wildflower Lane to our parking area.
We look forward to seeing you.
