The classic image of a Maine Fisherman is the lobsterman who owns and operates his own boat with a small crew to help with the catch. While this is still very much the case, Maine is diversifying its fisheries: aquaculture is introducing more marketable species, multi-national companies are applying for land-based aquaculture permits, the traditional bait fish stocks are running short and new sources need to be found, the removal of river dams means more fish are returning to the Penobscot Nation’s sovereign waters, and women are breaking into the fish catch and processing arenas.
