State of the Science is a two-day conference to discuss ecosystem-based fisheries management in Eastern Maine, bringing together experts from local governments, fishing, science, and academic communities. Keynote speakers include DMR commissioner Pat Keliher and Bureau of Marine Science director Carl Wilson. The conference is a step toward producing a comprehensive understanding of our current knowledge of Eastern Maine's watersheds, intertidal, nearshore, and offshore ecosystems. Keynote speakers will present their work on these systems, including knowledge of governance and socio-economics. The conference will then use breakout discussions to identify gaps in knowledge and next steps.
