Contributors

The Gulf of Maine Area program has been shaped by the guidance of advisors from science and policy backgrounds who continue to play key roles in the development of the program.

Our program incorporates scientific results and ideas from a large group of contributors from the region. Contributions to the Gulf of Maine Area program include projects that were partially or fully funded by GoMA, as well as findings from other programs.
