What We Do
Maine Coast Dock Talk's first "Fish Wrap" dives into the concept of 30x30 and the impact that protecting 30% of the US oceans may have on fishermen.
Ben Martens was joined by Leigh Habegger of Seafood Harvesters of America, Noah Oppenheim of Homarus Strategies, and Monique Coombs of the Maine Coast Fishermen's Association.
We have partnered with some of our favorite Maine businesses to create unique gifts that share the story of Maine's fishing communities and support the people and places we love.
Whether you're staying in Maine or missing Vacationland from afar, we hope you will consider purchasing a "gift that gives back" from the MCFA online store.
"Small-boats matter. We don't often get a win, but after 10 years of persistence, we did today.” Togue Brawn, owner of Downeast Dayboat and a long-time advocate for Maine’s scallop fishermen.
