FOUR-A Island Fishermen Attend Sector Meeting Fishermen from Martha's Vineyard, Bar Harbor, Jonesport and Swan's Island gathered last month for the inaugural meeting of members of the Northeast Coastal Communities Sector. Over a 6 a.m. breakfast in Stonington, Me., the group elected a governing board and made plans for the opening of this year's groundfishing season.qhis historic event heralds the possibility of landing sizeable amounts of groundfish in east- ern Maine for the first time in almost 20 years. Formed last fall, the Northeast Coastal Communities Sector is one of 17 new groundflsh comanagement sectors work- ing with the National Marine Fisheries Service. Sectors are a new federal management tool that allows fishermen to fish when they choose, in exchange for abiding by strict catch limits. The 20 Northeast Coastal Communities Sector members must also agree to protect the habitat by fishing with only hooks or traps and to take responsibility for each other's behavior. The group includes 12 fishermen from Maine, five from the Vineyard, two from Sandwich and one from Mastic, Long Island, N.Y. Sector manager Aaron Dority said: "Sectors are not defined by geography. Martha's Vineyard fishermen have much Island Farm Shares Alpaca Shearing With Open House Island Alpaca Farm's third annual shearing day open house is this Saturday, April 24, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., rain or shine. The farm, located at 1 Head of the Pond Road in Oak Bluffs, welcomes families to meet and learn about the alpaca, and watch as expert shearers dip the luxurious fleece, to be made into yarn (available for purchase at the farm) and give the animals a lightweight, warm weather haircut. More than 50 alpacas are scheduled for shearing and public viewing. Admission to the open house is $5 per person. For details, call 508-693-5554 or visit islandalpaca.com. in common with our eastern Maine fish- ermen- they, too, have been marginal- ized by fishing regulations and the big commercial fishing fleets. And they share our conservation values and the vision of a sustainable fishery." Sector members are allocated fishing quota for the fishing year according to their catch history of all stock between 1996 and 2006. Not all the members will fish this season. Though localized deple- tion and strict regulations prevented most members from fishing during that decade, the NCCS Sector currently has an al- location of more than 360,000 pounds of fih that members will be licensed to catch, thanks to the quota attached to Penobscot East's permit bank. Legal-sized fish can be sold, and some of the fishermen will market their fresh catch directly to local consumers through the new groundfish community sup- ported fishery beginning this May. Swan's Island sector member Jason Joyce observed: "When I was young, there were over a dozen fishermen on Swan's actively catching groundfish, and today no one fishes commercially for groundfish anymore. This sector is our only opportunity to rebuild that fishery for my community." For details, please e-mail aaron@pe- nobscoteast.org or call 207-367-2708.

To Vineyarders, such a goal would seem ambitious, but certainly plausible. But for a young family living in New York city, zero impact means zero elevators, taxis, Windex, television, material consumption of any kind, and no garbage. This comedic and occa- sionally profound document of their experiment shows just how difficult green living can be. Doors to the Katharine Cornell The- atre on Spring street in Vineyard Haven open at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 24. Admission is $8, or $5 for society members. For details, call 774-392-2972 or visit mvfflmsociety.com.
