Abstract

Ken Texor writes about the bloodworm and sandworm industry and his day worming with George Dorr and three other professional diggers from the Wiscasset area, all of whom engage in the physically demanding because of the same reason: No boss. A normal working tide is about three or four hours, during which a sandworm diggers should be able to harvest around 1,200 worms, and a bloodworm digger about half as many. The worms, after having been harvested, are sold to dealers who pay 7 1/2 cents for each sandworm and 12 cents per bloodworm.
