Fishermen Invited to Share Stories

The Midcoast Maine Fishing Heritage Alliance is looking for commercial fishermen living and working in Sagadahoc, Lincoln, Knox or Waldo counties who are willing to discuss their fishing family heritage through pictures, stories, news clippings and other artifacts. Fishermen are invited to share their stories in a small group setting at the Maine Fishermen’s Forum, March 2-3 in Rockport. Fishermen who have participated in collaborative research are also invited to describe their research experience.

Fishermen will be interviewed by Fishing Heritage Alliance advisors and board members. Selected fishermen will be compensated at a competitive hourly rate with certified “credit vouchers.” Vouchers can be redeemed at local vendors to purchase safety equipment, vessel maintenance services or other approved “non-fishing gear” purchases.

Since 2010, the Midcoast Maine Fishing Heritage Alliance has contracted for public outreach services with eighteen fishermen who have received a total of $17,000 to help them maintain their vessels in safe and seaworthy condition.
