MITSG 93-25

This report focuses on the social, cultural, and economic aspects of the fishing industry in three New England communities: Stonington, Maine, and New Bedford and Gloucester, Massachusetts. Along with profiles of the value and quantities of catches and estimates of the number of fishermen calling each port home, the report also provides in-depth information about standards of living, education, management and enforcement, and various fishing organizations. The discussion of various potential socio- cultural impacts of Amendment 5 to the Northeast Multispecies Fishery Management Plan includes detailed coverage of both the fishermen's economic worries and their concerns about losing a way of life.
