The Maine Fishermen’s Forum is a free, three-day annual event that brings together fishermen, sea farmers, gear suppliers, state and federal scientists and regulators, and other stakeholders for education, collaboration, commerce, and more.

We look forward to this event every year and are eager to hear from coastal community members that are recovering from January’s storms and navigating changes in our lobster fishery.
