Celebrating 20 Years


As I round the turn on my first year at the helm of MCCF, I am deeply inspired by the great work of those who came before me and the entire community that created this amazing organization now celebrating its 20th year. I am honored to carry forward the mission and steer the course towards Fishing Forever.

With the help of the Board, the staff, and the community it has been a warm welcome getting to know our fishermen, neighbors, colleagues, and partners. The work that we do at MCCF remains vital to achieving balance between environmental sustainability and economic viability, which is key to our challenge.

I see immense opportunity through continued efforts of our community to support adaptive and sustainable fisheries, supporting a diverse set of owner operators in our harbors, a variety of businesses in our community, kids in our schools, and a sense of hope and job satisfaction that entices our youth to continue the fisheries heritage. This image of vibrant and resilient coastal community propels me forward every day, all the while knowing how fragile our way of life is.

It is with immense gratitude and pride that I share this report of our activities at the Maine Center for Coastal Fisheries spanning 2022 and into 2023. Thanks to our donors, our dedicated staff, our volunteer Board members, volunteers from the community, the many partners, and supporters, our work continues to serve the fishing communities of Downeast Maine.

Rebuilding and maintaining diversity in Eastern Maine’s fisheries requires all hands-on deck. Co-management of the marine and river ecosystems must be shared by fishermen, community groups, scientists, and fisheries managers to enable us all to adapt and persevere as climate and oceans change.

Fishermen’s knowledge and ideas lead the way
with collaborative research and management to build Maine’s vibrant wild and cultured scallop fishery

Man looking at catch over side of boat

Capture and culture scallop fisheries are co-developed to best support year-round coastal fishery economies.

Tribal partnership enables ecosystem monitoring in the Skutik Estuary
to capture vital data sets and inform adaptation in response to ecosystem change resulting from dam removal and climate change

Two women on the deck of a boat with water quality measuring equipment

Water temperature, salinity, nutrient, pH, and oxygen sensors are deployed to monitor water quality before and after dam removal in the Skutik River estuary.

Students develop safety and maritime skills and knowledge
to sustain resilient coastal community fisheries and engage in policy relevant projects

Measuring juvenile scallops

High School students measure juvenile scallops to understand growth and temperature relationships.

A network of fishermen, scientists and managers coordinate on alewife management
and river monitoring efforts, leading the way by example to restore this keystone species

Working the alewife fish run

Bagaduce River system sees historic Alewife runs of 70,000 fish per day at maximum peak.

The Sentinel Survey time series is accepted
as an index of juvenile cod abundance in the new Eastern Gulf of Maine Atlantic Cod Stock Assessment

Cod are measured and sampled for genetics, age and population structure.

Discovery Wharf and the marine touch tank connect people with our place
to experience island coastal fisheries, our heritage, and our future

Discovery Wharf greets over 2,500 public visitors from 45 States and 12 countries. Expanded oral history and climate change story-telling exhibit engages visitors of all ages.

Municipal Governments
think far into the future (on projects like the Deer Isle Causeway), combining infrastructure and the environment in a plan towards fishing forever

Water rushing into harbor next to granite pilings

Contributing to comprehensive planning and infrastructure projects supports access to working waterfronts and ensures coastal connectivity in the face of threats due to rising waters.

Legislative wins shape the future of shared uses of the ocean
to ensure whale conservation as well as viability of the lobster fishery in the new blue economy

Legislative wins including Federal Omnibus spending provide over $20 million to support gear adaptation in the lobster fishery over the next five years.


For the period January 2022 – June 2023.
We apologize if we inadvertently left any donors off this list.

Maine Center for Coastal Fisheries

 A Beacon of Success in Maine, a Model for Places Beyond

Maine Center for Coastal Fisheries is on a mission to build sustainable fisheries and productive marine ecosystems, supporting resilient communities and sustained fishing heritage and economies in Downeast Maine.

Eastern Maine is a place where fishing can be sustained, forever. Maine Center for Coastal Fisheries was founded in 2003 on the principle that the only way the resources of the oceans will be protected and sustained is through joint stakeholder stewardship: collective action of fishermen and their communities, supported by science and working in combination with regulatory authorities at all levels.
