Maine Fishermen’s Forum @ Samoset Resort
Mar 2 – Mar 4 all-day

he Maine Fishermen’s Forum hosts fishermen, gear suppliers, scientists, government and other stakeholders to collaborate on all things fishing: markets, resource status, regulations, the latest in technology, the environment and more.  If it’s of interest to the fishing industry, chances are you’ll find it here.

Each year the Forum provides three days of free seminars for fishermen covering a wide range of topics such as the health of the lobster resource, commercial fishing safety, upcoming regulatory actions, and much more.  It’s the social event of the year for Maine’s fishing community with lots of informal socialzing and networking opportunities and an organized event each night including the seafood reception, Friday night Fish dinner, and a not to be missed banquet and dance on Saturday night.  Day trippers are welcome but there are a host of lodging options both on and off the resort.  We are a family-focused event with a full suite of children’s events.
