Meet New Hampshire Sea Grant Experts


Gabriela Bradt, Ph.D.

Commercial Fisheries Extension Specialist - Dr. Bradt's research aims to inform the use of invasive green crabs as a possible seafood product. This would help control the spread of the invasion, while also providing added income to local fishermen that are experiencing trouble with the current wild harvest fisheries.


"If we are going to have enough supply for restaurants and other markets...we need to be able to get a whole bunch of them [green crabs] to molt around the same time."

Alyson Eberhardt

Coastal Ecosystems Specialist - Alyson is working with Caitlin Peterson, the Citizen Science Outreach Coordinator, to coordinate a community-based sand dune restoration project to increase coastal resilience along the N.H. coast.


"I have always been very interested in applied science, and science that has direct connections to people and solving real world probelms. To me, that really embodies what Sea Grant is."

Michael Chambers, Ph.D.

Marine Aquaculture Extension Specialist - Michael Chambers designed an Integrated Multi-trophic Aquaculture (IMTA) Platform which provides seed to local farmers to help sustain oyster, mussel and seaweed aquaculture in the region.


We've seen one farm grow to now 14 farms, so it has been a tremendous growth in the past 7 years."
