Downeast Discussions


DEI’s comprehensive education program helps students, teachers, fishermen, and others apply Marine Science to their everyday lives.

Applying scientific and research principles to real-world questions can help fishermen and resource managers make sound decisions, help teachers bring science to life for students, and help learners of all ages gain a fundamental understanding of the marine environment and what it will take to sustain the fisheries our communities depend on.

Our “Downeast Discussions” series brings marine and fisheries researchers and others to the community to share their expertise, both in-person and virtually.

We will occasionally offer continuing education and summer short courses for college credits.

Like us on Facebook to be sure you are notified about upcoming science education opportunities.

Downeast Institute is holding a virtual Climate Change Seminar exploring the effects of ocean acidification and warming on early life stage soft-shell clams and Atlantic Surf clams on July 8. Please contact Sara Randall ( to RSVP.
