ROCKPORT — The Samoset Resort Saturday was packed with people, all turned out for the 40th annual Maine Fishermen’s Forum. Today was the last day of the three-day forum. The day’s activities included the trade show and seminars and it all culminates tonight with a banquet dinner and a dance to cap off the weekend. 

 

The Maine Fishermen’s Forum is an annual event that focuses attention on issues affecting the state’s commercial fishing industry. 

 

The forum attracts several thousand people to the resort from fishing related businesses, government agencies, individual fishermen and public organizations that serve the industry.

 

The forum happens through a volunteer effort by people who donate time, equipment and services.
