DMR, through its Maine Permit Bank Program (MPBP), auctioned allocations of its annual catch entitlement (ACE) for 14 fish stocks for the 2011 fishing year to qualified applicants who submitted the highest bids through a live auction process. This ACE distribution mechanism was a pilot program used to inform DMR of how best to distribute MPBP ACE in the future. As such, this process was applicable to allocations made for the 2011 fishing year only.

The ACE auction took place at the Portland Fish Exchange (PFE) on May 19, 2011. The auction was performed and overseen by Bert Jongerden, General Manager of the Portland Fish Exchange. The MPBP operated under the August 2010 Memorandum of Agreement for the 2011 fishing year.

More details about the auction are available below, or by contacting DMR's Trisha De Graaf.
