Maine Coast Harvest is a series of short documentary films designed to highlight the economic and employment opportunities presented by Maine’s burgeoning aquaculture industry.
With a 3,500-mile coastline, an abundance of clean water, and a strong fishing and processing infrastructure, Maine has the potential to lead the nation in aquaculture. Yet, despite the state’s vast advantages, it has not fully realized the enormous opportunities that aquaculture offers.
In the series’ first two films, one will meet two multigenerational fishing families in Maine who have taken the leap into aquaculture and are reaping the benefits. Learn why aquaculture holds great promise for young people and entrepreneurs who want to join the movement, as well as providing diversification opportunities for those who make their living fishing the sea.
Visit mainecoastharvest.com to learn more about the films. Maine Coast Harvest is a collaboration between Good Fight Media, the Z Fund, the Gulf of Maine Research Institute, Maine Aquaculture Association, and Mook Sea Farms. Together, they have joined forces to create a series of short documentary films – filmed on North Haven – about the promise of aquaculture.
Learn more about aquaculture and its related business and job opportunities on Tuesday, Sept. 11 from 6-7 p.m. at Lincoln Theater, 2 Theater St., Damariscotta. The event is free.
