Everyone knows a fisherman.

Meet Carrie Courtney, a young researcher with POORT
right here in Port Orford. This organization's mission is to protect ocean resources through education and sustainable practices among all interested parties. Her project is to meet with everyone in town and ask them if they wouldn't mind posing with the sign that best describes them.

I chose the sign that said My Friend is a Port Orford Fisherman.

Read about the projects they are sponsoring, and then promote their work, even if you don't live by the sea, or have never known a fisherman.  The ocean nourishes us in so many ways, and this organization makes it their mission to spread the message.

From tiny voices great messages grow. I would like to go to sea again on the same ship I sailed on '72-'75 and see what the North Atlantic was like.

What a clever way to encourage awareness about the plight of fisherman who make a living from the sea and to remind folks where their seafood comes from- I love it!
