Our continuing public lecture series is a unique educational opportunity, bringing world-renowned experts from our region and beyond to GMRI for one evening each month. Past topics have included right whales, bluefin tuna, climate change, and the future of the cod fishery in New England. We hope you will join us as we continue exploring the diversity of the Gulf of Maine ecosystem.
