About the Downeast Fisheries Partnership:

The Downeast Fisheries Partnership came together in 2014 to improve the health of our communities by rejuvenating the region’s once-thriving fisheries economy. Our unique composition is our strength.  We are nonprofit partners with strong expertise and extensive experience working with, and to support and restore fish, fishermen, fisheries, food systems, and community economics.

Founded in 2014, this collective action partnership is working with supportive funders, like-minded nonprofits, fishermen, local municipalities, and state and national fisheries managers to restore a resilient foundation for a thriving fisheries economy across Maine’s Washington and Hancock counties.
