Aaron comes to Frenchman Bay Conservancy from Penobscot East Resource Center in Stonington, where he worked for seven years, most recently as Federal Policy Director. Aaron co-founded a cooperative research hook and line marine finfish survey in eastern Maine, securing federal funds and operating the program for five years to strengthen stock assessments and improve fisheries management. He spearheaded the effort to propose a federal waters bottom-trawling closure stretching from Penobscot Bay to the waters off Schoodic Point, a proposal that is pending federal review. He developed a “permit bank” which operates like a land trust in some ways, securing fisheries access for future generations of eastern Maine fishermen, and started the organization’s new entrant fisherman program. Aaron served on the groundfish (cod, haddock, flounders) advisory panel to the New England Fishery Management Council for three years, and is currently a board member of the Blue Hill Food Co-op. He lives in Blue Hill with his wife Jessie and three children.
