Opportunity Knocks: The Growing Blue Economy in The Gulf of Maine & Beyond

The challenges that define our work in the Gulf of Maine are locally focused yet globally relevant. In our newest Sea State Series, we will take a deeper look at the Gulf of Maine ecosystem, its global connections, and our efforts with partners and stakeholders to understand both.

In this session, Blaine and our Gulf of Maine Ventures team work with companies that are finding innovative ways to optimize the seafood supply chain and address the impact of climate change. Blaine will be joined by industry partners who are pursuing innovative solutions to ocean economy challenges and talk about the opportunity for growth here in the Gulf of Maine, and what we can learn from global trends in this expanding sector.

Doors will open at 5:30 pm with complimentary refreshments available and our program will being at 6:00 pm. Parking is available for free for all registered event attendees on site in our adjacent lot.
