We were joined by guest speakers Aaron Dority and Carla Guenther from the Penobscot East Resource Center in Stonington, Maine. The mission of Penobscot East Resource Center is to secure a diversified fishing future for communities in eastern Maine. To advance this mission, Penobscot East creates programs that tap the deep knowledge of fishermen, provide innovative leadership, and advocate for community-scale fisheries. 

Aaron and Carla detailed their work with fishermen and policy makers, and talked of how their network is responding to new challenges and opportunities in a changing Gulf of Maine ecosystem.
