Board of Directors

The Maine Aquaculture Association’s board of directors is designed to represent Maine’s diverse aquaculture sector, and includes members who own, operate, and are employed by commercial shellfish, fin fish, and sea vegetable farms that use diverse growing methods throughout the state. The board represents small, medium, and large companies that operate on LPAs as well as experimental and standard leases in state waters, in addition to land-based operations and supporting companies that supply goods and services to the sector. 

The role of the board of directors is to guide the association’s work by bringing diverse perspectives from the grower community to the table. The board votes to determine MAA’s positions on various legislative bills, membership dues, approval of meeting minutes, and elects new members to the board. Each company is entitled to a single vote, but in some cases board seats are shared by two individuals from the same company who must vote together.
