Maine State Aquarium



The Maine Department of Marine Resources was incorporated to conserve and develop Maine's marine resources; to conduct scientific research on these resources; to promote the sustainable use of Maine's valuable commercial and recreational fisheries and other marine resources; to work with local, state, and federal officials to manage activities in coastal waters; and to enforce laws and regulations necessary to accomplish these goals. This is all while encouraging an ethic of personal responsibility for the Gulf of Maine in all Maine citizens. The Maine State Aquarium was instilled to assist with these goals and focus on educating the public about the role of the Department of Marine Resources and to provide opportunities for guests to interact with species or participate in programs that will help them gain an understanding and appreciation for the Gulf of Maine and it's resources.
