"Our maritime traditions allow us to work with a community that has strong ties to the ocean, creating a window for dialogue."
"The Gulf of Maine is an incredible system that supports microscopic zooplankton, majestic whales and thousands of species in between. In fact, it is one of the most productive marine systems on the planet."
"We absolutely need clean energy solutions, and our ocean resources are going to be a big part of that, but we must also consider the ocean’s plant and animal communities as we move ahead."
