Fourth in a six-part series on the fishing industry entitled "Empty Nets, Sinking Hopes." Overfishing in the Gulf of Maine is changing the region's diverse ecosystem, resulting in an increase of dogfish, skate and other fish and a decrease in such valuable species as cod and haddock. The most dramatic consequence of the decline in the fisheries might be its impact on the coastal character of the state. Nearly 1,700 Mainers work on groundfishing boats, and decreasing incomes is causing some of them to sell their boats and start new careers.
