The Maine fishing industry's biggest event is underway: The 39th annual Fishermen's Forum is taking place at the Samoset Resort in Rockport through Saturday. Among the featured guests is the nation's top federal fisheries official, Eileen Sobeck, who was recently appointed head of fisheries for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association, or NOAA. Sobeck stopped by our studios this afternoon on her way to Rockport, and spoke with Maine Things Considered host Tom Porter.
