Event: 'Making A Living From The Sea? Histories Of Downeast Fisheries - Lecture By Todd Little-Siebold' Print
  Lecture
Date: Thursday, July 12, 2012 - 4:00 pm
Duration: 1 Hour

College of the Atlantic professor, Todd Little-Siebold, will explore how nineteenth century fisheries evolved as a part of a broader regional economy in which specialization and technological change slowly shifted how people fished.    The history of the region's fisheries is a contentious matter. As people discuss the future of fisheries they often refer to "the way things used to be." Taking a long term view of the place of fisheries in the local economy this lecture will provide some historical grounding and anecdotes to explore what fisheries looked like and how they shaped local communities. Using the examples of the cod fishery in Frenchmen's Bay and a discussion of herring fisheries, the discussion will examine monumental shifts that took place as fisheries changed in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.The lecture is free of charge.  However, donations to help Woodlawn develop more programs will be greatly appreciated.  Please call Woodlawn at 667-8671 to reserve a seat.
