|Captain Bob is a former instructor at the University of Maine and Maine
Maritime Academy. Over the twelve years he taught marine biology,
oceanography, chemistry and helped develop the aquaculture industry in Maine.
His love for the sea also directed him to teach scuba diving and to become
a master diving instructor. He served as the diving instructor for the
University of Maine marine lab. Captain Bob was selected to be one of the
first fifty Kellogg National fellows which allowed him the opportunity to
study fishing techniques all over the world. He was able to develop a
definitive study of world fishing management techniques based on historical
success and failures of various countries.
His love of biology and travel has taken him on two expeditions to the Galapagos as an American guide. He considers these adventures to be high points of his career.
As skipper of Morning In Maine he has guided many visitors through the beauty of the Maine coast. He artfully explains the nuances of the environment of the sustainable but fragile coast of Maine. Bob's background includes several years as a commercial fisherman, diver and scalloper. Captain Bob will provide an interesting narrative of the local environment as well as the ocean economy that drives the mid coast region.
