Today was the first full day of the American Lobster in a Changing Ecosystem: A US-Canada Science Symposium. More than 100 of the region’s top lobster scientists have gathered in Portland, Maine, to share their research.

Maine Department of Marine Resources Commissioner Patrick Keliher in his welcome remarks reminded the scientists that they also are here to help managers and fishermen to define “the new normal.”

The new normal = lots of lobsters.

There are fish in these rivers.

In the Kennebec, the Penobscot, the rivers in between and either side, the alewives are running.
