This is a 1981 David Weaver and Elizabeth Sorenson pictorial fishing map of the coast of New England and Canada. The impressively long map covers from New London, Connecticut to Passamaquoddy Bay, Canada. Areas of dark green shading highlight conservation areas, including state parks and forests, national wildlife refuges, and wildlife management areas. Pictorial illustrations highlight the various types of seagoing boats popular in these seas. Other short texts comment on marine sanctuaries and the environmental conditions. Red symbols identify beaches, lighthouses, and coast guard stations, as well as aquariums, museums, research institutions, and other sites of interest. An extensive index situated along the top border offers additional information about each. Data on recreational fisheries, fishery regulations, red tides, and Atlantic salmon restoration appears along the bottom.
