Maine Seafood Guide - About

About: Definitions & Sources

Maine Sea Grant developed this guide as a source of science-based information on marine species harvested from the Gulf of Maine and sold, marketed, or traditionally consumed as “seafood” in Maine. The guide is intended to collate information on species regulated at federal, state, and local levels as a service to the consumer of Maine seafood.

Watershed Kiosks

In 2006, staff at the NOAA National Marine Fisheries Service Maine Field Office initiated a partnership with Maine Sea Grant to produce content for two informational kiosks planned for the lower Penobscot River region. The Penobscot River watershed is currently the subject of an unprecedented restoration plan that will restore access to over 1,000 miles of rearing and spawning habitat for Atlantic salmon, alewives, sturgeon, and other species of sea-run fish.
