The Forum Board is delighted to welcome back Captain Keith
Colburn from the series “Deadliest Catch.” He will be
participating in the Thursday Forum seminar “Questioning our Changing
Oceans,” and plans to be in attendance for the entire 3 day event.
DMR has a new online licensing and landings
system, called Maine LEEDS. DMR staff will be on site at the Fishermen’s
Forum (find us in the Business Manager’s office) from Friday (10 am to 4
pm) and Saturday (9 am to 2 pm) to help you register for the new system
so you can apply for licenses, submit landings reports, and even order
tags online. Even if you already have your 2016 license, stop by
to create a login and to learn how LEEDS can save you from submitting
paper applications and reports to DMR.

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.
welcome you and your family to get away to the Forum – for a whole bunch
of great reasons! There is
to attend the seminars, tradeshow, or auction.
