Biographical Sketch

In this interview, Dave Cousens—a lobsterman from Waterman's Beach, South Thomaston, ME—and Edwin McKie—a lobsterman from Bay of Fortune, Prince Edward Island, Canada—speak about the social and legal differences between Canadian and U.S. lobster fishing and the projects, such as meetings and the Eastern Maine Skippers Program, that they have worked on together. After meeting sometime between 1998 and 1999, Cousens and McKie have worked together to increase communication and education on the differences between the lobster industry in the U.S. and Canada.
