Apprenticeshop Talk: “Maine’s Working Waterfront: Personal and Professional Reflections” —

The public is invited to the Apprenticeshop, 655 Main Street, Rockland, on Wednesday, May 15, at 6 p.m., for “Maine’s Working Waterfront: Personal and Professional Reflections,” a discussion with Merritt Carey (pictured) about the working waterfront, its importance to Maine’s economy, and what it means to work on the waterfront in Maine today. There is a suggested donation of $10 for admission to the talk. From Portland’s proposed referendum to conflict over aquaculture lease sites to the Land for Maine’s Future Fund and the oft-cited statistic that of Maine’s 3,500 miles of coast only 20 are protected as working waterfront, there is constant conversation about what Maine’s coastline should look like. Carey will share personal reflections and observations about the changing culture along the coast, as well as professional insights from her work as a board member of the Tenants Harbor Fisherman’s Co-op, the Maine Aquaculture Co-op and Luke’s Lobster.
