ELLSWORTH — Fishermen, aquaculturists, scientists and others connected to Maine’s commercial fishing industry will gather to bump elbows, check out new gear and attend seminars and industry reports at the annual Fishermen’s Forum March 2-4 in Rockport.

The forum was canceled in 2021 and 2022 because of COVID-19 concerns. Offshore wind development will receive special focus in a seminar, “Fisheries Engagement in Offshore Wind Development,” covering its impact on fisheries and the ecosystem and how fishermen and the fishing industry can participate in decision-making as offshore wind moves into the Gulf of Maine.
