Annual Report 2020

In a year like no other, we continued to serve our stakeholders and made meaningful progress against our biggest goals. We invite you to explore our impact throughout 2020 in this annual report.

Our Vision

Around the globe, 2020 was a year of disruption. As we navigated public health, economic, racial, and political crises, business as usual was not an option. Through all of it, GMRI has emerged stronger than ever, thanks to the commitment of our dedicated staff and supporters.

As I reflect on the past year, I’m proudest of how we continued to serve our partners. Our Community Team promoted struggling seafood businesses at every turn, even donning masks to carry out collaborative research with fishermen partners on the water.

Our Education Team rolled out a suite of virtual offerings for students and their teachers, regardless of where they live, replicating our LabVenture program online. Our scientists created a virtual research experience for a diverse group of undergraduate students all over the country while continuing to launch innovative research projects at the nexus of fisheries and climate change. Our Business Development Team supported our two new business spinoffs through unimaginable start-up challenges.

Beyond navigating multiple crises, we actually made real progress. We provided innovative fishermen with new opportunities to secure a premium price for their catch. We launched new technology platforms to promote responsible aquaculture growth and citizen science. We hired a world-class climate scientist to lead our new climate center. We continued to lead on the issue of rapid warming in the Gulf of Maine and we secured a new research vessel, thanks to a wonderful gift from a longtime fishing family.

As we enter a year of recovery and return, you’ll continue to see us develop collaborative solutions to the most pressing ocean challenges we face. We are dedicated to the resilience of the Gulf of Maine ecosystem and the communities who depend on it.

We know what we learn here is relevant around the world as other coastal communities grapple with similar challenges. We are deeply appreciative of the entire community who enable GMRI to take on this important work. Thank you for your generous support this year, in all the years before, and in all the years to come.

— Don Perkins, GMRI President/CEO

Our Progress

Each year, we share dozens of stories that highlight our mission, impact, and partners. Revisit them all in this look back at our favorite moments from 2020.

2020 Financial Update

Chief Financial Officer Charissa Kerr summarizes a successful fiscal year:

Gulf of Maine Research Institute (GMRI) had a breakeven fiscal year ended June 30, 2020. We had another successful year, with continued delivery of core programs and 8% growth in total expenses, when compared to the previous twelve months.

GMRI programs are funded primarily by federal grants, foundation grants, and individual contributions. Revenue was up $1,300,000 when compared to the previous twelve months, primarily arising from increases in federal and foundation grants.

Fundraising and community relations activities are funded by unrestricted contributions. Most administrative costs are allocated as overhead to program and development costs, in compliance with federal cost guidelines. The balance of administrative expense is funded by income from administrative services contracted to our subsidiaries.

GMRI’s wholly-owned, non-profit subsidiary, Gulf of Maine Properties Inc. (GMPInc), owns and operates GMRI’s facilities. GMRI rents 85% of the total space in the building and the remaining space is rented to other tenants.

GMRI consistently receives unqualified opinions from external auditors in our financial and federal compliance audits. We also have a long-standing audit history of not receiving Management Letter comments on any material financial weaknesses. Our 2020 external audit was no exception.

Most of the growth in our net assets is in endowments and future programs. We maintain our laboratory facilities in A-class shape. We are creating a strategy to reduce our carbon footprint, with the goal of becoming carbon neutral by the end of 2021.

During our Fiscal Year Ending June 30, 2020, GMRI launched a second wholly-owned, for-profit subsidiary, New England Marine Monitoring.

Meanwhile, GMRI continues to grow its national and international reputation as a marine research institute, a leader in citizen science education, and a technical resource for the fishing industry.

GMRI and GMPinc audited financial statements are reported on a consolidated basis.
