Today is the start of the Maine Fishermen's Forum at the Samoset Resort in Rockport.
We hope you are planning on swinging through for a seminar or two and a visit to the National Fisherman booth in the exhibit hall.
Don't miss your chance to spec a new engine; weigh in on lobster, herring or sector allocations; or take part in a session of safety and survival training in the Samoset pool.
The show runs from 9 am to 4:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, so come on by for a family fun day.

NOAA, in consultation with the Department of the Interior, has appointed 10 new members to the Marine Protected Areas Federal Advisory Committee.

The new members join the 10 continuing members appointed in 2012.
