RESEARCH in the INTERTIDAL

With Shellfish Committees

If your local Shellfish Committee is working with DEI, chances are they will need some volunteers at least twice a year to deploy or retrieve experiments from the intertidal.

RESEARCH in the INTERTIDAL

Independent Field Trials

Most of our intertidal shellfish research is conducted in partnership with communities and their shellfish committees. There are times, however, when we look for suitable areas to deploy independent experiments, and seek out landowners with shore frontage who would be excited to watch our experiments unfold and learn along with us.

RESEARCH in the SUBTIDAL

On Your Lease

DEI works to develop new candidate species and technology for shellfish aquaculture. We welcome current leaseholders who are willing to partner with us and provide space for our activities.
