I sure hate this: In Maine, Last Sardine Cannery in the U.S. Is Clattering Out


Maine was once a hub of the sardine business, with more than 50 canneries

From The New York Times:

On April 18 . . . the last sardine cannery in the United States [in Prospect Harbor, Maine] is shutting down.

Once a thriving national industry — and the backdrop of John Steinbeck’s gritty “Cannery Row” — sardine canneries have been dwindling for the last half-century. They have fallen victim to global competition, corporate consolidations and a general lack of appetite, at least in the United States, for sardines, despite their nutritional value and attempts by chefs to give them an image makeover.
