Penobscot Bay Report Saturdays 12-1pm.
For people who enjoy, work on and care about Maine’s biggest bay. While relaxing to the natural and human sounds of Penobscot Bay–its waves, winds and wildlife; its foghorns, fishing craft and ferryboats–get your weekly update on the doings of local, state and federal agencies and interest groups grappling with overseeing the bay’s commercial and recreational fishers and hunters, aquaculturists, coastal developer wannabes, and its licensed and unlicensed dischargers.
Hear recordings from recent bay-related meetings and public hearings, interviews with retired and working sea captains and readings from 19th century marine scientists exploring and documenting the state of the bay and the Gulf of Maine before the twentieth century’s mechanized fisheries, petrochemicals and other advanced technology changed them forever. And learn how to become a Penobscot Bay Report radio correspondent!
