Lobster Girls at Work

You can’t keep a good woman down or, in this case, a girl. Children in Maine’s lobstering families are introduced to the fishery when they are young, and girls are no exception. We offer here a few pictures submitted through Instagram of lobstering girls at work. Look for more perspectives on the fishery in coming months!

Cedelia and Dorothy 'Dory" Pinkham are the daughters of the late Chris Pinkham of Boothbay and they clearly inherited their father's love of lobstering. They are just two of our "Lobstering Girls at Work" featured here.
