This volume is part of a final report on social science aspects of fisheries management in New England and is divided into three sections. In Section I, general background information is given concerning aspects of the fisheries in northern New England. Included is a history of fishing in the area, general information on the coastal environment and biology of major species caught and a background on fishing boats and gear, marketing and processing, and the legal environment. Section II describes each of the ports in Maine and New Hampshire, as they were in the baseline year of 1978, outlining the physical setting and population, the major industries, general infrastructure, and port infrastructure. Section III describes the local variations in the fishing industry of northern New England. This is done, in the maine, by presenting a statistical summary of the information contained in the port descriptions. (Sinha - OEIS)
