Loren McClenachan, assistant professor of environmental studies, coauthored a paper recently published in the Journal of Ocean and Coastal Economics (Vol. 5: Iss. 1, Article 2). “Missing the Boat? Measuring and Evaluating Local Groundfish Purchases by New England Institutions” reports on a case study that evaluated purchases of local groundfish by schools and colleges in New England, and finds, in part, a “high degree of state-level variation within New England, as institutions in states with relatively more prominent commercial fishing sectors are sourcing local seafood products to a relatively greater degree,” according to the paper’s abstract. The paper includes research conducted by Chase Goldston ’18 and Caroline Winslow ’18 during their environmental studies senior capstone course.
