The MAINE COAST SARDINE HISTORY MUSEUM is a fascinating place to anybody the least bit interested in Maine history. Museum director Ronnie Peabody has been associated with the sardine industry his entire life. He says that at its peak, in 1952, there were at least 50 canneries in Maine processing and packing herring. For Peabody, the museum represents a lifelong dream come true, a dream he has fulfilled all on his own.

Talk about fresh! The guys at MAINE MAHOGANY SHELLFISH deal directly with local fishermen. This explains their motto, "From the C 2 U." You can't ask for fresher scallops, shrimp, halibut, claims, or crabmeat. You can get lobsters live or cooked to your specifications.
