Click to hide meeting description
One of the unique experiences of New England diving is catching lobsters. At the May General Meeting, Vin Malkoski will go over all the laws and regulations straight from the Division of Marine Fisheries. It's a great way to find out what you can and can't catch, and learn some of the techniques from your fellow divers!
Vin is a Senior Marine Fisheries Biologist for the Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries. Current duties include horseshoe crab management and research, ghost gear studies, PCB fisheries monitoring, and scientific diving. Relative to the meeting, Vin has been a New England diver for 35 years and an active diving instructor for 27 years. A member of the Boston Sea Rovers and the Board of Directors of the Bay State Council, Vin has produced and assisted in the development of several guides for divers diving in Massachusetts and harvesting local seafood, particularly the prized American lobster.

Tuesday, April 19, 7 to 8:30 pm
Harvard University Science Center, Hall D
Philippe Cousteau will share stories of how his father and grandfather inspired him to carry on a legacy that fostered the environmental movement in the 20th century. He will discuss his latest projects, which extend from Wall Street to Hollywood, and talk about how new approaches to storytelling and sustainability are needed if we are to solve the critical social and environmental issues facing us today.
Join Dan Saturday, May 14th for a tour of the best dive sites on Cape Ann. We will be driving all over Rockport, Gloucester, and the surrounding areas and point out the highlights of each site, and any tips we have for entrance/exit, or what to look out for.
Along the way, we will be collecting any trash or debris on the beach, and properly dispose of it. It's been a mild winter for storms, but there is usually still some debris washed up on the beach. We will be doing a cleanup at each stop until we run out of space in the truck for trash.
Again this year we'll be ending with a lunch at a local resturaunt.
