Faces of the Future

A hallmark of the Maine lobster industry is tradition. Lobstermen hand down standards and practices to their children and grandchildren personally, on the boat and on land. Lobstering is not learned from a book or a You Tube video. The young learn it slowly, from calloused hands. We feature here a selection of photos of the children of the Maine lobster fishery. Look for more pictures in the coming months!
