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 our vast advantages, the state has not fully realized the enormous opportunities that aquaculture offers.
In these first two films, you will meet two multi-generational 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.
