Conserving Gulf of Maine Fisheries

Fish and fishermen are integral to the story of New England, but these are dark days for one of our region’s oldest industries. Our ecosystem is changing, and fishermen are reporting that populations of ground fish, like cod, are at historic lows. The Nature Conservancy is working alongside fishermen in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Rhode Island on collaborative research to understand how the fishery is changing, and on market-based solutions, like permit banking, to help historic fishing communities survive.
