John Sowles, who was overseeing an attempt by the Department of Marine Resources
John Sowles, who was overseeing an attempt by the Department of Marine Resources to conduct a trawling survey to assess state's fisheries stock, complains of the distrust that exists between fishermen and the government. Sowles' work was brought to halt off Gouldsboro on October 20, when fishing boats surrounded his trawler, making it difficult to drag for organisms on the sea floor. The trawler had to return to the dock. Sowles argues that the survey was intended to help the fishermen, but Dana Tracy, one of the protesting fishermen, argues that fishermen can protect the fishing resources by themselves.
