Maine AgrAbility angles resources for those who fish

Maine AgrAbility, dedicated to addressing chronic health conditions and disabilities for those in agriculture, also offers resources for fishermen and women to help address issues affecting their health, well-being and productivity. 

Maine FishAbility is now offering monthly articles and stories about common health issues and resources for those in Maine’s fishing community. The most recent article, “Fishermen and Back Pain,” is available on the program webpage and also published in the Commercial Fisheries News April issue. Also available is the March article, “FishAbility for Maine Fishermen.” 

Maine AgrAbility, a collaborative project of University of Maine Cooperative Extension and Alpha One, is dedicated to helping farmers, fishermen and forest workers work safely and more productively. For more information, contact Leilani Carlson, 207.944.1533;
