Special Episode of Beyond Data Podcast Released – Resiliency in Maine’s Lobster Fishery & More

20180302_125300This special episode of the Beyond Data Podcast is reported from the Maine Fishermen’s Forum, which recently wrapped up here in Midcoast Maine.

In this episode, we hear from Maine Department of Marine Resources (DMR) Commissioner Patrick Keliher on resiliency in the State’s most valuable fishery. We also explore a case of mistaken science versus fishing industry, and we touch on the single biggest issue facing Maine’s working waterfronts over the next few years: right whale entanglements.

This coming weekend, the Beyond Data Podcast will be headed to Seafood Expo North America, so stay tuned for live tweets from that event, as well as additional special episodes of the podcast.

Beyond Data is reported, narrated and produced by me, Ret Talbot, in Rockland, Maine. If you enjoyed the podcast, please tell a friend about it, and consider subscribing on Apple Podcasts where you can also help out the show by rating it and giving us a review. That really does make a difference!
