A Place Apart
MPBN: Home Series, Moving Image, 00:27:01

Maine is a place apart from the mainstream of American society. Beginning early in Maine’s history, settlers, merchants, visitors, artists, and writers brought images of Maine to the rest of the world that shaped the State's economy, identity, and heritage. The history behind the image of Maine remains a vital part of how we and those from away view Maine today.

They Came By Sea
MPBN: Home Series, Moving Image, 00:28:01

Europeans arrived here by sea, attracted by the region's phenomenal fisheries and the natural resources visible on the coast. At first, they weren't interested in establishing permanent settlements but, as an appreciation for the economic value of Maine's natural resources grew, colonial settlement began. Today, Maine continues to rely on the economic advantages available through the natural resources of the coast.

Science, Text

The Lobster Conservancy (TLC) works with fishermen and volunteers throughout the Gulf of Maine region to sustain a thriving lobster fishery through science and community. It’s approach to scientific research and public education is to actively involve stakeholders in the process of doing science, and to disseminate the knowledge obtained from such research back to stakeholders, as well as fisheries managers and scientists. TLC studies the life of the lobsters from “egg to plate” by working with citizens from “kindergarten to post-retirement”.
