About fifty members of the public visited the CodEnd float and talked with these fishermen about their boats and fishing businesses.
A total of $1,600 in vouchers were earned for boat maintenance and safety equipment – including a life raft inspection and certified repacking for a dragger as well as engine repairs and hull maintenance on two lobster boats.
The Midcoast Maine Fishing Heritage Alliance is also working with Lobster Festival board and Rockland harbor master to work out details of having a Meet Your Local Fisherman event at the Lobster Festival.
