About This Journal
The Catch publishes works of poetry, fiction, essay and other nonfiction prose inspired by the fisheries and coastal heritage of Downeast Maine, defined here as Hancock and Washington counties and adjacent waters. The Catch is related to the Downeast Fisheries Trail
, a maritime heritage education effort that highlights 45 sites of current and historic fishing heritage in Maine's two eastern coastal counties.
The Catch is administered by the Maine Sea Grant College Program
at the University of Maine.
The Catch was inspired by Saw Palm's Places to Stand in Florida
and other place-based journals around the world.
