Beyond the Bow

A fisheries needs assessment of the Harpswell community.

Amassing over 200 hours of interviews, the Maine Coast Fishermen's Association has compiled an in-depth needs assessment of the Harpswell's vastly diverse and resilient fishing community.  Once completed, the final report Beyond the Bow, will be available for local, regional, and state resources to be developed and modified to better support the fishing community as it continues to grow and adapt.
