“I think if people just gave dogfish a try, if it was served in
restaurants, if it showed up on menus, I think people would try it and

Tour highlights Portsmouth areas threatened by sea-level rise

could rise to road level on Marcy Street by South Mill Pond — in the

Researchers Receive Grant to Study Declining N.H. Moose Population
In New Hampshire, the mighty moose – the shy, stately, 750-pound beast
that drives tourism in the North Country – is on the decline. Its
current population, estimated at 4,400 animals, has dropped from the
1996 high of 7,600. But the primary threat to the moose isn’t bullets,
bumpers, or even teeth: scientists think warmer winters are to blame,

Ph.D. student Matt Smith wanted to shake everyone’s hand in gratitude . .
. but he couldn’t. That’s because his fingers were covered in poison
ivy after handling a pile of wood chips that likely had a brush with the
irritating vine. Instead, Smith offered his verbal thanks to the group
of founding donors that helped establish the Organic Dairy Research Farm
at the University of New Hampshire (UNH). At the dairy’s new, privately
funded composting facility, Smith conducts his experiments to help
farmers drive down energy costs and reduce environmental impacts at
their own operations.
