2020 Maine Fishermen's Forum

The Maine Fishermen’s Forum is an annual gathering of commercial fishermen, gear suppliers, scientists, government representatives, and other stakeholders in the Northeast region. Science Center scientists and regional office staff participate in the forum to connect with industry and share information about Maine’s marine resources. They talk about how things like fishing regulations, climate change, offshore wind energy, and other factors might impact the day-to-day and long-term operations of the industry. We attend the forum and participate in its seminars and panel discussions to build and strengthen our relationships with Maine’s commercial fishing industry and its stakeholders. Here’s where to find our staff in action during the forum.
