“Tourism business opportunities for fishermen” amoung offerings at annual Maine Fishermen’s Forum

Maine Sea Grant helped start the Maine Fishermen’s Forum more than 30 years ago, and we continue to be involved in the annual gathering of Maine’s fishing industry, this year scheduled for February 28 through March 2. The Marine Extension Team will be co-leading sessions on tourism business opportunities for fishermen, ocean renewable energy, the basics of shellfish and seaweed aquaculture, ocean acidification, and Trade Adjustment Assistance trainings for enrolled lobstermen. We are also sponsoring a reading series at the Forum by New England authors with recent books on fisheries-related topics: Nancy Frazier, I, Lobster: A Crustacean Odyssey; Mary Cerullo, City Fish, Country Fish; Eva Murray, Well Out to Sea; W. Jeffrey Bolster, Mortal Sea: Fishing the Atlantic in the Age of Sail; and Gordon Holmes, East of the Hague Line.
