Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Farmers, customers preview growing season at CSA fair in Bangor
Bangor Daily News - 2/28/2011.
By Meg Haskell – Bangor: Winter is far from over – March in Maine being one of the snowiest and most blustery of months – but inside the Unitarian Universalist Church on Park Street on Sunday afternoon, spring got off to an early start. About a dozen area farmers were on hand, looking to sign up partners for their community supported agriculture programs.
Inviting the groundfish industry back home
Maine Sunday Telegram - 2/27/2011.
Op-ed by Bill Gerencer – BOWDOIN - Maine's long-standing groundfish industry is at an all-time low. This once-vibrant industry, which used to land more than 50 million pounds of fish annually and bring millions of dollars and thousands of jobs to the state, is now a tiny vestige of itself. If you think this is due to overfishing, you'd be right. If you think that overfishing still exists and fish stocks are in terrible shape, you'd be wrong – tremendously wrong.

By J. Hemmerdinger – Portland: The Gulf of Maine Research Institute has a message for consumers: It's OK to eat New England seafood. This week, the nonprofit marine research group announced that it has partnered with the fishing industry and retailers to promote sales of four species that are sustainably harvested from the Gulf of Maine.
