MCOG Releases St. George Working Waterfront Vulnerability Study

Fishing and aquaculture are big business in the Midcoast. Recently, MCOG took a close look at the challenges and opportunities facing one small town, St. George, as these industries evolved. The study aimed to understand its marine community, the economic benefits it brings, and its vulnerability to changes in economies and climate. The goal was to show how a decline or shift in the marine industry could affect vulnerable populations in St. George. The study also suggested areas for investment in new opportunities, especially as the fishing industry aims to diversify and reduce reliance on just one product, like lobster. This study provides a valuable toolkit for St. George, and others like it, to invest in the future of their working waterfronts.
