The 2017 Forum will be held from March 2-4 at the Samoset Resort in Rockland. This is the largest event of its kind in New England – one dedicated to offering fishermen, clammers, lobstermen, aquaculturalists and other related seafood industry participants an opportunity to meet on neutral ground with fisheries managers, state representatives, Congressmen and Senators. If you wish to reserve a room and package at the Samoset Resort please fill out a 2017 Samoset Registration Form or if you wish to purchase meal tickets for the evening events please go to evening activities.
We offer over 30 seminars on different subjects related to the fishing industry, gear regulations etc. In addition, there are family programs, a Trade Show, a Seafood Reception highlighting Maine’s seafood, a Banquet/Dance on the last night, as well as a Benefit Auction to raise Scholarship funds for the kids from our seafood families enrolled in secondary education.
We welcome you and your family to get away to the Forum – for a whole bunch of great reasons! There is no cost to attend the seminars, tradeshow, or auction.
