ORONO — Angela Myracle’s research is going to the dogs.

Or, more accurately, for the dogs.

And when the assistant professor of human nutrition at the University of Maine spied dog treats at a local supermarket that were made with lobster from Iceland, she thought, “What about dog biscuits made with green crabs from Maine?”

If the novel idea becomes a market reality, Myracle says it could be a win-win-win situation.
