University of Maine Darling Marine Center will host a webinar led by Robert Steneck, called “Maine’s Changing Lobster Fishery: Some Direct and Indirect Impacts of Climate Change,” on Friday, July 10, at 10:30 a.m.

Steneck’s research over the last three decades has focused on climate change impacts on coastal ecosystems and the communities that depend on them, in Maine and around the world. A professor of oceanography, marine biology and marine policy, Steneck is internationally known for his underwater field expeditions from the North Atlantic to the Caribbean and Indo-Pacific regions, as well as for mentoring students from UMaine and other institutions. This spring, he was awarded the university’s highest research honor, the Presidential Research and Creative Achievement Award.

Steneck’s virtual seminar will kick off the DMC’s three-part summer science series. Presentations on July 24 and August 7 will provide additional opportunities for participants to learn about current marine science and policy topics.
