The Gulf of Maine is warming at a rate faster than 99% of the world’s oceans. What does this mean for the local seafood industry? As fishing communities try to adapt to climate impacts, there are opportunities for seafood lovers to help our region maintain a strong, thriving seafood economy.
Light snacks, soft drinks and water, and a cash bar for beer and wine will be available from 5:30-6pm for pre-lecture mingling.
Support for the Ted Exford Climate Stewards lecture series is provided by Dave & Loretta (Exford) Hoglund.
Kyle Foley is the sustainable seafood program manager at the Gulf of Maine Research Institute. She works with participants in the Gulf of Maine Responsibly Harvested® ecolabel program to build and respond to demand for regional seafood. The collaborative program seeks to empower consumers to buy seafood they can feel good about.
