Lost Fishermen’s Memorial Planned for Lubec, ME

The Lost Fishermen’s Memorial in Lubec will be engraved with all of the names of fishermen lost at sea from Washington County and Charlotte County, N.B.


Ellesworth American: After nearly 6 years of fundraising, the Lost Fisherman’s Memorial Association will soon break ground on its planned memorial.

Since 2009, the association has raised $120,000 for the planned Lubec sculpture. Not coincidentally, 2009 was a year when several area fishermen were lost at sea. Steuben sculptor Jesse Salsbury is going to begin working on the sculpture once the snow melts.
