A Warming Gulf of Maine and our Marine Economy

September 17 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Over the past three decades, the Gulf of Maine has warmed three times faster than the global average. Over the past 15 years, that number has increased to seven times the global average. The Gulf is warming faster than 99% of the world’s bodies of water. These are alarming statistics that can’t be ignored.

The Bangor Daily News (BDN) presents “BDN Climate Conversations: A Warming Gulf of Maine and our Marine Economy,” in which a panel of experts discuss Maine’s warming waters and how they are affecting our marine economy. 

This webinar will be moderated by BDN managing editor Dan MacLeod. 

Guest speakers:

Yong Chen, Professor of Fisheries Science in the School of Marine Sciences at the University of Maine

Kathy Mills, Research Scientist at the Gulf of Maine Research Institute

Bill Mook, Founder of Mook Sea Farm in Walpole

Richard “Rick” Wahle, Clare S. Darling Professor of Marine Sciences in the School of Marine Sciences and the director of the Lobster Institute at the University of Maine
