Real Working Waterfront


According to the city's website, "Portland is one of the largest fishing ports in New England and is the twentieth largest in the US." It is also "located closer to Europe than any other transatlantic port in the US." I know that second fact is still true, but I wonder if the first one is still accurate. It looks like this 'city facts' section of their website doesn't get updated too often. Perhaps Portland has moved up or down its standing as a fishing port. Anyone know?
