We’re pleased to be bringing back one of our favorite annual events called "Aquaculture Isn't Scary, It's Necessary". We do this each year around Halloween and we convene people, companies, and project leaders for a fun and educational conversation focused on aquaculture. The format is simple and engaging, with networking, a panel discussion, and an audience led Q&A.
This year, we're encouraging COSTUMES for those that want to get into the Halloween spirit. We'll even have a Blue Economy goodie bag for the best dressed, more on that soon!

ENTREPRENEURSHIP IN THE BLUE ECONOMY
Entrepreneurship in the Blue Economy (EITBE) is an event series created by the New England Ocean Cluster to share the stories of ocean-focused entrepreneurs and project leaders in Maine. Each session is free to attend and includes a curated panel of speakers who share their own intimate and organic perspectives on the topic du jour. Created in 2019, the program’s intent is to convene an engaged audience to raise awareness, promote dialog, and facilitate connections amongst those interested in the region’s blue economy. For 2022, the EITBE series has become a part of Transforming the Blue Economy (TBE), a purpose-driven collaboration created by the World Ocean Observatory, a 501c.3 non-profit, and the New England Ocean Cluster. The project endeavors to advance and modernize New England’s ocean-minded industries through education and community engagement; by bridging the gap between capacity and need; and by assisting in the creation of sustainable and innovative enterprises.
