Description

The purpose of my research is to understand the impacts of changing social and ecological conditions on the lobster industry in Maine by examining the life and work experiences of the people who are directly involved with it. The rapid pace of changes in the fishing sector make my study interesting and hopefully useful to the people situated in different parts of the industry as they face new challenges and work to take advantage of opportunities as they move forward. My aim is to further understand the challenges that members of the lobster fishing industry face on a daily basis and the structure and organization of the industry.
