Update from Maine DMR Aquaculture Program

At this time, public hearings remain on hold. As part of the staged plan to reopen Maine, restrictions on public gatherings are slowly being lifted, but at this point we don't have a specific date for when public hearings will resume. However, staff are currently exploring alternative strategies to hold such events. These approaches are intended to help limit the spread of COVID-19, while providing meaningful opportunities for interested persons to participate.

Applicants interested in scheduling a pre-application meeting should contact Angel Wilson at marcy.nelson@maine.gov

Scoping sessions are being scheduled on a staggered and limited basis. DMR is contacting individual applicants to let them know when they may start scheduling their scoping session.
