Getting Down to Business in Port Clyde
The lobster processing business is vital to the Maine economy. Port Clyde's prominent business is fishing, including lobster. Local fishermen, however, have been shipping their catch to Canadian processing plants. Jessie Wright-Mendoza, Katrina Roi, Wolfgang Daniel, and Gillian Fish, students at the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies, paid a visit to Port Clyde and interviewed two processors: Kyle Murdock and Linda Bean, the granddaughter of the famous L.L. Bean, are both are attempting to bring this important industry back to the local community. The local and corporate initiatives are significantly different, but both have great possibilities.
