This week, Portland, Ore.-based fisherman and photographer Corey Arnold is in the other Portland. And tonight in Rockland, Maine's Island Institute is hosting "Fish-Work," a presentation of Arnold's seafaring stories and images of fisheries from around the globe.
No doubt the discussion will cover lobster protests, groundfish cuts and ESA declarations, but more importantly, this is an opportunity to get a glimpse at the world of fishing through Arnold's guileless lens. This is fishing and seaside culture like you've never seen before.
The presentation begins at 7 p.m. at the Strand Theatre in Rockland. Tickets are $7.50 and can be purchased at the Strand box office beginning at 5:30. The Island Institute is also hosting a public reception at 386 Main St. in Rockland, starting at 5:30 p.m.
I hope to see you there!

PORTSMOUTH, NH - The New Hampshire Fish and Lobster Festival, known locally as Fishtival, invites the community to Portsmouth's Prescott Park each September to honor, celebrate and rediscover the proud tradition of small-scale, local commercial groundfishing in New Hampshire and its valuable contribution to our local food system, local economy and local culture. Now, the mission continues with the announcement of small grants available from the proceeds of the 2013 event.
