Spurred in part by discussions within the Seafood Advisory work group, Maine Coast Fishermen's Association (MCFA) took on an extensive needs assessment of Harpswell fishing community which is both diverse and resilient. MCFA's assessment was in-depth, and amassed over 200 hours of interviews. The final report, Beyond the Bow, is available for local, regional, and state resources to be developed and modified to better support the fishing community as it continues to grow and adapt.
