ROCKPORT — Maine fishermen are gearing up for the 35th annual Maine Fishermen’s Forum.

The forum is being held Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the Samoset Resort in Rockport and features seminars, a trade show, a benefit auction and a dinner and dance.

It is the largest event of its kind in New England, bringing together fishermen, fishery managers, scientists, politicians, seafood dealers and others with an interest in commercial fishing.

Fishermen this year will hear from Eric Schwab, the newly appointed assistant administrator for fisheries at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. They’ll also have a chance to meet with lobstermen from New Zealand, Australia and Canada who will share their outlooks on the industry in their countries.
