Competing for the Commons Along Maine’s Coast
June 14 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
June 14 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm (join either in person or remote via Zoom)
Join us for a free presentation by Paul Anderson, Director of Maine Center for Coastal Fisheries. During his presentation, Paul will discuss how the coastal waters of Maine are becoming more crowded with a multitude of emerging interests competing for space including capture fisheries, aquaculture, renewable energy and transportation – to name just a few. Can our coastal ecosystem support all of these interests? Do our existing governance systems enable sound management of these activities in a way that balances conservation, prosperity and sustainability? Mr. Anderson will share some lessons learned from his work over the years on bay management, sustainable aquaculture and fisheries management and efforts to promote local voices and values in how we manage our common resources in the coastal zone.
Paul Anderson is the Executive Director of Maine Center for Coastal Fisheries. Anderson has 32 years of experience working with Maine’s marine resources, primarily in public service roles, at the intersection of science, policy, and community.
Attend in-person or remotely via Zoom.
