Abstract/ Summary

Our vision, from our current strategic plan, is a Maine where people recognize that healthy ecosystems are the foundation of resilient communities, and act to ensure the long-term health of coastal resources. Maine’s coastal communities include viable neighborhoods, thriving waterfronts, and businesses that draw upon and maintain their natural and cultural heritage. Wild harvest and culture fisheries and the communities that depend on them are economically viable and environmentally sustainable. Maine has a diverse workforce skilled in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and other disciplines critical to the ecological health, economic vitality, and resilience of Maine’s coastal communities and ocean-related resources.
