While it's difficult to think about anything but the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico these days, our staff is busy preparing for the Commercial Marine Expo next week in New Bedford, Mass.
It's a solemn time for the commercial fishing and commercial marine industries, but there's no better time to gather, discuss the future, and commiserate.
We also plan to celebrate by honoring our 2010 Highliners — Bob Evans of Churchton, Md.; Jim Odlin of Portland, Maine; and David Spencer of Jamestown, R.I.
We hope to see you in the aisles of the State Pier on Wednesday and Thursday, June 9 and 10, and time your splicing, net-mending and knot-tying skills for your chance at $100 cash prizes and more in our 2010 Fisherman of the Year contest on Thursday at 1 p.m.
