Today, I was delighted to help further discussions on the importance of the North Shore's blue economy - one that embraces the unique opportunities that we have connected to our coastal communities. Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito, members of the Baker-Polito Administration, and many key stakeholders came together at the Cape Ann Museum to release the North Shore Blue Economy Phase I Findings and Vision Forward report.
This Phase I work was led by the UMass Amherst Gloucester Marine Station and supported by Essex County Community Foundation, Greater Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce, #Gloucester Economic Development & Industrial Corporation, North Shore Innoventures, North Shore Technology Council, City of Gloucester, MA, and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Our blue economy has tremendous potential for the future and capturing that potential and strengthening current area uses such as marine and life sciences, tourism, technology, and of course fishing.
