Redefining 'sustainable'

In keeping with that mission of balancing fishermen’s livelihoods with ecologically sustainable practices, the Gulf of Maine Research Institute, based in Portland, Maine, is starting a new program aimed at training Northeast fishermen to ease environmental impacts while simultaneously boosting their profits.

The first Environmental Management System program is scheduled to take place in Beverly, Mass., on Feb. 16 and 17. Admission is free but limited to 20 participants.

If you’re interested in attending, please contact Steve Eayrs (steve@gmri.org or 207-228-1659) or Jen Levin (jlevin@gmri.org or 207-228-1688) at GMRI.
