Stand Firm Shirts and Tanks

Our latest shirt is in collaboration with Loyal Citizen Co. This shirt is inspired by Colonel Joshua L. Chamberlain's famous quote during the epic battle for Little Round Top: "Stand firm, ye boys from Maine." 

With a little bit of a twist, we've updated his quote to reflect our work in supporting Maine's fishermen as they work together to build a healthy Gulf of Maine and sustain Maine's fishing communities for the next generation. SHOP

Seaspiracy: A seafood response

Seaspiracy not just questions the idea of sustainable fishing, but suggests it's a myth and conspiracy. 

 

Not surprisingly, we disagree! To put some context to the film and to share what it got right, wrong, and really, really, really wrong, MCFA  convened a panel of experts to share their thoughts on the film. 

 

The panel included: Jes Hathaway, National Fisherman; Michael Conathan, Fisheries Policy Expert; Barton Seaver, chef and seafood educator; and, MCFA's executive director Ben Martens. WATCH
