A new marine business and research incubator called the New England Ocean Cluster House is being developed on Portland’s waterfront that is modeled after a similar incubator in Reykavik, Iceland.  University of New England is co-sponsoring this project, led by Patrick Arnold, the majority owner of the Ocean House.
