Swans Island Fisherman's Co-op

Meet the neighbors:

Co-op membership hasn’t grown much since 1972, from 23 to 30 members, perhaps not surprising on an island with just 300 residents. Prior to 1972, Morris Sprague owned and ran the Co-op's wharf as a lobster-buying station. As he grew older and his daughter, a school teacher on the mainland, showed no interest in taking over his business, he decided to turn the property over to his lobstermen and provided financing for the fledgling co-op.
