Skipper’s Cohort Day on MDI

The Eastern Maine Skippers Program had its second cohort day of the year on Wednesday, November 28th, 2018. The cohort day was held at the Northeast Harbor Neighborhood house in Bar Harbor. Students were able to attend sessions on different topics including Electronics/GIS, Go Pro 101, Value Added Products and Marketing, and Catching Fish (using jigs, flies, nets, and traps).

In the Electronics/ GIS session, the students watched demonstrations from the professionals about the newest and fanciest technology for boats: radar, GPS, etc. They also got a chance to learn how to make their own GIS map.

In the Go Pro 101 session, the students learned how to set up Go Pro cameras on boats and traps in order to get data about fishing practice and safety.

In the Value Added Products and Marketing session, the students went into the kitchen with professionals to create a seafood product, a name, and a label to help learn the in’s and out’s of adding value to seafood.

In the Catching Fish session, the students learned how to build tools for catching fish. They tied flies, rig jigs, and construct gill nets.

The Eastern Maine Skippers Program is a cohort of eight high schools from coastal communities from Washington and Hancock counties, and JBHS has twelve students involved in the program.
