Dear Geoff and group members,


 Thanks for the email.  The demise of Seabait UK/Shoreline PF was due to a number of factors including the current western economic situation and some very bad luck.  Luck can often make the difference in business and it can shut you down over night!  Even with the demise of the site in the UK, I do still maintain the belief that the culture of polychaetes has a part to play in the future sustainability of global aquaculture and I am sure that the interest in and uses of polychaetes in aquaculture will continue to grow.


Best regards,
Stephen

Desperately looking for live Glycera for research project  
Probably seen this already, but FWIW:
 
http://bangordailynews.com/2010/04/12/business/bloodworm-harvesting-is-a-tough-but-liberating-way-of-life-for-diggers-down-east/
 
“In 2009, 902 licensed harvesters and 38 worm dealers were active in Maine”
 
And this dealer was offering worldwide shipment:  http://www.mainebloodworms.com/index.html
 
By the way I see that Seabait UK, that cultured Alitta virens in UK and also branched out into worm farming in Maine, has gone out of business.   It can be even tougher as an aquaculture farmer than harvesting in the wild ( though that lady in Maine in the photo has it pretty tough I think).

Dear people,
I’m trying to get my hands on living specimens of Glycera dibranchiata (or Glycera species other than G. fallax and G.tridactyla) for a research project. I’ve been contacting commercial bait dealers and marine labs in the US and UK, but so far without success.

If anyone is able to help me out, or point me in the right direction I’d very grateful!

Best regards,
Ronald Jenner
