Maine Coast Oral History Initiative
We put a microphone in front of Maine fishermen and let them talk. We can't guarantee that the size of the fish hasn't gotten bigger, but they had some great stories to share.
Through the support of the Maine Humanities Council and the Island Institute, MCFA was able to collect hours of oral histories from fishermen throughout Maine. We took some stories and snippets from those interviews and turn them into short YouTube videos for your enjoyment. Take a little time to listen to the amazing experiences and perspectives that Maine's Fishermen share from their lives out on the water.
