I'm heading north tomorrow morning to set up for the Maine Fishermen's Forum at the Samoset Resort in Rockport.
Though the trade show doesn't start officially until Friday, there is a full day of seminars on Thursday. I'll be presenting on National Fisherman's Profitable Harvest forum in the afternoon in the Rockport Room.
Former gubernatorial candidate Eliot Cutler will be presenting at the Marketing and Profitability seminar with me on Thursday, and the show's organizers have announced that Gov. Paul LePage will be attending the show on Friday. Friday also offers the opportunity to meet the new commissioner of Maine's Department of Marine Resources, Norm Olsen.
As usual the forum offers a wide spectrum of seminars and exhibitors for every aspect of Maine's commercial fishing industry.
If you find your way up to Rockport this weekend, come find us in the State of Maine Hall.
