ROCKPORT, Maine (AP) - The 40th Annual Maine Fishermen’s Forum is wrapping up in Rockport, Maine, with a focus on climate change.

Saturday is the third day of the forum and it includes a seminar called “Forecasts, Tools and Research to Support Fisheries in Adapting to a Rapidly Changing Gulf of Maine.” The seminar promises to focus on the rapidly rising warming rates in the Gulf of Maine, which is a critical body of water for New England fishermen of cod, lobster and other commercial species.

The forum ends with Saturday night’s banquet dinner and dance.

The fishermen’s forum began on Thursday at the Samoset Resort in the state’s Midcoast region. Organizers bill the event as the largest marine trade show north of Boston. The event includes seminars, presentations, auctions and dinners.
