Blaine House Conference 
on Natural Resource-based Industries

"Charting a New Course"

November 17, 2003 . Augusta Civic Center

Maine today faces challenges of truly historic proportion in our natural resource based industries including fishing, farming, forestry, and aquaculture. Once the mainstay and promise of our economy, each faces dire threats to its very existence; and tourism depends upon their health and well-being for its own.

Blaine House Conference Goals:

1. Identify for Maine people the importance of these industries to the Maine economy and culture, and the nature and scale of the current threats to them;

2. Encourage fresh, creative ways of thinking about these issues, and new networks of relationships to deal with them; and

3. Move as far as possible toward a practical plan of action to follow up on the conference, with widespread buy-in, and with specific actions, responsibilities, and timelines.
