At GMRI, we provide the scientific data needed to understand this unique ecosystem and manage its use – a need that has never been more critical.
Over the last 40 years, our waters have seen drastic declines in groundfish, an explosion in the lobster population, a decline in many native species, and an influx of new species from outside the region. Our waters are warming faster than 99% of the global ocean, placing us on the frontlines of climate change.
We are building the knowledge and predictive tools needed to successfully manage fisheries experiencing environmental change, take advantage of any new opportunities that emerge, and sustain this incredible resource for future generations. Our ecosystem-based approach to science guides our research across traditional boundaries, providing an integrated look at sustainability in the bioregion. And our commitment to objective, scientific research has enabled us to become the trusted partner of fishermen, conservation groups, and fishery managers.
