FALMOUTH — The Maine Department of Marine Resources will hold a public session Tuesday, March 6, to gather input on a proposed expansion of Wild Ocean Aquaculture’s current lease near Clapboard Island.

The hearing starts at 6 p.m. and will be held at the Mason-Motz Activity Center, 190 Middle Road.

Wild Ocean currently has a lease that allows for suspended blue sea mussels, scallops and various species of seaweed and kelp on approximately 11 acres southeast of the island.

The hearing provides an opportunity to learn more about the proposal and to have an informal discussion with the applicants about their plans.
