Collaborative research isn’t just a two way street between a couple of stakeholders. It’s more like a busy highway, during rush hour, with people coming and going, quick detours, periodic road work, and if you make it to your destination on time, it’s a big win. Coordinating a large effort of fisheries data collection takes careful planning, relationship building, problem solving, late nights and early mornings, and nimble flexibility. This presentation will take a look at collaborative efforts to assess and rebuild the groundfish fishery in eastern Maine, and the best practices we’ve learned – and are still learning – along the way. Join University of Maine Graduate Student Robyn Linner and MCCF’s Collaborative Research Specialist Pat Shepard as they share stories about hook fishing by day for cod, and purse seining by night for alewives.
