The Worlds of Jacob Pike

A Video by Blake Hendrickson, Basic Explanations Studio

Jacob-Pike

Penobscot Marine Museum was instrumental in saving the Jacob Pike, a historic Maine-built sardine carrier. Sardine fishing and packing once formed important financial and cultural bases of Maine’s coastal economy. The Pike’s continued use in a working role enables her to represent this once thriving industry. This video, in five parts, was partially organized by the museum and describes the history of the sardine industry and the history of the Pike itself.
