This document provides the results from a survey conducted August-October 2021 on the Maine and New Hampshire oyster aquaculture industry. The purpose of the survey was to gain a food system-wide perspective on gender dynamics in the region’s aquaculture industry, inclusive of different genders and identify potential gender-based barriers and opportunities to participation for men, women, and non-binary/third gender oyster aquaculturists. The published survey results include qualitative responses and demographic data for a subset of farmers in the oyster aquaculture industry of Maine and New Hampshire.
