Maine Marine Fare Sept. 28 at Penobscot Marine Museum

Sep 09, 2019

Searsport — Penobscot Marine Museum’s Maine Marine Fare takes a closer look at the state of Maine fisheries with a full day conference Saturday, Sept. 28. The classic image of a Maine fisherman is the lobsterman who owns and operations his own boat with a small crew. While this is still the case, Maine is diversifying its fisheries.

Register by Sept. 16 for the conference, whose themes will focus on land- and sea-based aquaculture, bait fisheries, processing fish, and dam removal and the return of the fish. Professor Robert Steneck, Ph.D., School of Marine Sciences, The University of Maine, will present the keynote on The Current State of the Gulf of Maine Fisheries.

Maine Marine Fare will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Searsport’s Union Hall, 1 Union St. The conference cost is $75 for the general public, $60 for Penobscot Marine Museum members, teachers and nonprofit employees, and $30 for students. Lunch will be provided.
