Mariners and those who depend on the sea cause and respond to cultural, economic, and ecological changes. This symposium takes an interdisciplinary look at the issue of changing environments through a variety of lenses. These lenses include changing visual and cultural interpretations of the sea, Maine’s changing roles in international trade, the changing role of literary figures in marine conservation, and the ways that climate change impacts fisheries.

Manomet’s Marissa McMahan, Senior Fisheries Scientist and Anne Hayden, Program Manager, Sustainable Economies Program will be presenting  The Future of Fishing in a Rapidly Warming Gulf of Maine as part of the afternoon session.
