US fisheries official to hear state fishermen


The top federal fisheries official in the Northeast is coming to Maine to hear from fishermen and others about issues facing the commercial fishing industry. This month John Bullard became the administrator for the Northeast region of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s fisheries service, based in Gloucester, Mass. Soon after taking the job, he launched a series of listening sessions to hear from stakeholders about the major issues facing the industry and thoughts on how the industry should be structured. As part of his tour, Bullard will be in Portland Tuesday and Ellsworth Thursday. He has already held meetings in New Jersey and Massachusetts, and has another meeting scheduled in September in New Hampshire.
