Celebrate Maine seafood and Maine Coast Fishermen’s Association’s 10th Anniversary!

Thomaston, ME –On Tuesday, June 7, 2016, The Maine Coast Fishermen’s Association (MCFA) will be hosting Hook, Line, and Dinner at the Slipway Restaurant in Thomaston, Maine. This event will celebrate Maine’s local seafood, as well as, the 10th anniversary of the association.

The Maine Coast Fishermen’s Association (MCFA) is a fishermen led non-profit organization that identifies and fosters ways to restore the fisheries of the Gulf of Maine and sustain Maine’s iconic fishing communities for future generations. As stewards of the marine ecosystem, MCFA fishermen promote the ecological and financial sustainability of fisheries through balancing the needs of the current generation of fishermen with the long-term environmental restoration of the Gulf of Maine. MCFA works to achieve these goals through advocacy, education, outreach, and collaborative research projects.

Hook, Line, and Dinner will be a lively night full of celebration. The event is 6:00 – 9:00 PM, attendees will enjoy fresh, locally caught seafood, a silent auction highlighting goods from local Maine vendors, and a cash bar. Most importantly, you’ll hear the important contributions MCFA fishermen have made over the past 10-years; the changes they have seen over the past 10-years; and what they see in store for Maine and its fisheries over the next decade. Gerry Cushman, Port Clyde fishermen and MCFA board president, says, “MCFA, though starting from humble grounds, has been a pivotal source for groundfish fishermen in the state of Maine. Whether policy outreach, value-added projects for groundfish, or better understanding science and policy changes, MCFA is a necessary organization. I’m excited to celebrate 10-years of the organization with fellow-fishermen and friends at the Slipway.”

Hook, Line, and Dinner is open to the public. Tickets are $25 per person and may be purchased on our website: www.mainecoastfishermen.org or by calling (207) 619-1755 with credit/debit card information.

The Slipway Restaurant is located at 24 Public Landing, Thomaston, Maine. According to their website, the Slipway is a transcendental lobster shack serving the freshest, locally-sourced seafood on the dock!

Maine Coast Fishermen’s Association works tirelessly to keep our fisheries robust, our communities vibrant, and to put healthy, responsibly-harvested Maine seafood on the table. You can find more information about our organization at www.mainecoastfishermen.org.
