Profile of Sarah Sherman Brewer, 27, of Southport Island, a seventh-generation Southport native married to a seventh-generation Southport fisherman. Brewer went public last fall with a book about local veterans, and this spring emerged as an advocate for lobstermen. When the National Marine Fisheries Service proposed requiring lobstermen to purchase expensive gear to protect the northern right whale, Brewer wrote letters to everyone from the president to her local selectman. Brewer organizes meetings of the Midcoast Maine Fishermen's Wives Association, and publishes the group's bi-monthly newsletter, Fishnotes.
