The UMass Amherst Gloucester Marine Station (GMS) is located in Hodgkins Cove (Ipswich Bay, Gloucester, MA), which has a long history, first as a granite quarry (Cape Ann Granite Company, Rockport Granite Company; ~1856-1927) and then Consolidated Lobster Company (~1931-1963).
The property, spanning approximately six acres of land, was conveyed to the University of Massachusetts Foundation in 1964. From 1970-2007, Dr. Herbert Hultin, UMass Amherst professor, used the marine station to focus on seafood nutrition and microbiology research.
