Abstract/ Summary

Tourism is one of the largest contributors to Maine’s economy, contributing billions of dollars annually. The primary draw for many tourists visiting Maine is the vast outdoor recreation that Maine affords its visitors. This paper examines the legal issues regarding the possibility of commercial fishing vessels carrying passengers for hire, as well as aquaculture farms opening themselves up for visits from tourists.
