The purpose of this meeting is to discuss what success looks like for river herring restoration and explore how we can get there together as individuals, communities, organizations and government with shared knowledge of all of the issues, management practices, and mutually understood expectations for next steps to open river herring harvests and continue river restoration work. Mike Brown, Department of Marine Resources, will give a presentation on the how to’s and current management practices of opening a river herring harvest run with a facilitated question and answer period. All are welcome and we encourage all who are involved in the river herring fishery in Maine to come and share their experiences opening or continuing river herring harvests. 

Alewife Harvesters of Maine would like to thank our partners for sponsoring this meeting including, Department of Marine Resources, Downeast Fisheries Partnership, Downeast Salmon Federation, and Maine Center for Coastal Fisheries.
