Tradition…in the fishermen’s words

Hard Tellin' Alewives

Alewives are a meaningful part of Maine's fishing industry and way of life for many fishermen. Picking up fresh alewives to use as lobster bait is important to fishermen's harvests, and also a time when they can reconnect with fishermen that they haven't seen since the previous year's alewife season. Maine Coast Fishermen's Association and Knack Factory were so lucky to be able to spend some time in Warren and get a glimpse of this culture, hard work, and camaraderie that is unique to Maine's fishing industry. Thank you so much to Dana, Larry, Robert, and others for letting us hanging out and sharing such great stories with us.

Listening to this video in the words of the fishermen, the coming together of people around this resource is a rich tradition that remains unchanged.
