Working Waterfront Support Fund
The impact of January's storms on Maine's working waterfront is currently beyond comprehension. The devastation occurred rapidly, yet the reconstruction process will likely span years.
To provide a space for people to donate, we have set up a specific campaign that will be utilized to provide resources and support to fishing businesses and working waterfronts that suffered damages due to the storms.
The Maine Coast Fishermen's Association works to enhance the sustainability of Maine’s fisheries by advocating for the needs of community-based fishermen and the environmental restoration of the Gulf of Maine.
