ORONO — Scientists, fishermen, processors, regulators and others connected to the lobster industry in Maine and Canada are gathering for a two-day workshop to share the latest scientific information about the region's signature seafood.

Close to 100 people are expected at the third annual Science Workshop on Sustainable Growth of the Atlantic Lobster, which is being held Tuesday and Wednesday in Moncton, New Brunswick.

The symposium is put on by the University of Maine Lobster Institute and the Atlantic Lobster Sustainability Foundation in Canada, with a goal of mapping out ways to use science in support of lobster sustainability.

Among those attending are Department of Marine Fisheries Commission Patrick Keliher and fisheries ministers from New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Quebec.
