STATEMENT ON LNG TERMINAL AT PLEASANT POINT
As representatives of the fishermen of Cobscook Bay, we have invited to our meetings speakers from the Passamaquoddy Tribe in support of the LNG proposal and against the LNG proposal. We have had a chance to weigh both sides of the issue.
As fishermen, we stand to lose a lot of territory and nursery grounds for all the resources in the Bay. Gleason's Cove is a great clamming area, where the clams grow fast.
We have identified many concerns and asked many questions to which we have received no satisfactory answers. We believe the potential losses to the fishing industry are too great to risk. Until and unless we receive better answers and more information we must oppose the placement of an LNG terminal at Pleasant Point (Sipayik).
Dedicated to the conservation, enhancement, and sustainable use of the marine resources of Cobscook Bay.
