Abstract

The Midcoast Fishermen's Association was formed in Port Clyde as a nonprofit advocacy group in 2006. A year later, the group launched the Midcoast Fishermen's Cooperative to market members' catch and provide a direct link between fishermen and consumers. The group developed the state's first Community Supported Fishery, modeled after the Community Supported Agriculture movement. It created a business-marketing model and the Port Clyde Fresh Catch brand. At the core of the group's efforts is a strong conservation ethic, focused on catching low volumes of high-quality fish. With details on gear modification techniques to help conserve the fishery.
