     Welcome to the Maine Fishermen’s Forum!  This is the largest event of its kind in New England – one dedicated to offering fishermen, clammers, lobstermen, aquaculturalists and other related seafood industry participants an opportunity to meet on neutral ground with fisheries managers, state representatives, Congressmen and Senators.  We offer over 30 seminars on different subjects related to the fishing industry, gear regulations etc. In addition, there are family programs, a Trade Show, a Seafood Reception highlighting Maine’s seafood, a Banquet/Dance on the last night, as well as a benefit auction to raise money for kids from seafood families.
     We welcome you and your family to get away to the Forum – for a whole bunch of great reasons!  There is no cost to attend the seminars, tradeshow, or auction.
