A Bangor Daily News story describes Sea and Reef Aquaculture, a tropical fish-breeding business created by UMaine graduate Soren Hansen. Based at UMaine's Center for Cooperative Aquaculture Research in Franklin, the company has grown from an idea created by Hansen and Chad Callan when they were UMaine graduate students. The story includes comments from Prof. Dave Townsend of the UMaine School of Marine Sciences, who worked closely with Hansen and Callan as they began to develop their ideas. Jake Ward, UMaine's assistant vice president for research, economic development and government relations, also commented in the story, describing the business' economic development potential.
