ROCKPORT, ME Hoping that a fact-based discussion might ease tensions between bluefin tuna fishermen and herring midwater trawlers, the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) assembled a panel of top-level scientists and others for a March 5 seminar at the Maine Fishermen’s Forum.
Armed with PowerPoint presentations, the panelists covered a wide range of topics, addressing everything from tuna distribution to water temperature to stomach contents.
