The South Bristol Fisherman’s Co-op property is the single most important commercial fishing access point in Lincoln County, landing about 830,000 pounds of lobster and about 930,000 pounds of shrimp annually. Founded in 1972 by 12 local fishermen, the Co-op now serves roughly 40 boats and 70 fishermen. The Land for Maine Future’s Board supported the protection of the South Bristol Fisherman’s Co-op property in 2013. Grant funds helped finance a new bait freezer building, wharf repairs, and replacement of decaying floats.
