Working Waterfront Report

This is the report

The State of Maine's Working Waterfront Report

With generous support from Ram Island Foundation and Maine Community Foundation donors, the Maine Coast Fishermen’s Association was able to spend six months, from April – September 2019, visiting communities along the coast to examine the current status of infrastructure along Maine's coast.


This report shares information accumulated from interviews, conversations, meetings, and research to help elevate the value and attention paid to working waterfronts for commercial fishing and provide suggestions for how to protect this valuable part Maine's food system and economy. 


We hope it sparks new conversations and continues to shine a light on the needs of Maine’s commercial fishing communities.
