On July 24, WERU aired an edition of Coastal Conversations, hosted and produced by Natalie Springuel of the University of Maine Sea Grant, that explored a number of questions associated with women fisherman in Maine and PEI. What are the differences in fisheries management in Maine vs PEI? How and why these women got into fishing? What and who inspired them and mentored them in their fishing careers? What does being a woman bring to the job? What do they love about fishing? What do they recommend to other women who want to go fishing?
(Coastal Conversations can be heard live every fourth Friday, 4-6 p.m. at 89.9 FM.)
