      Collection contains unedited footage, [Seapro Project], a series of ten videotapes recording the workings of the Seapro fish processing plant immediately before it closed in October 1988. Footage shows boats hauling fish, various plant operations, and interviews with employees.
      Seapro, Inc. in Rockland was the last factory on the east coast of the United States to process crushed pogies into fish-meal, fertilizer, and other by-products. It was closed in October 1988 under pressure from the local community because of the foul smell emitted by the plant. Robert McIntire was an independent Maine media producer based in Orono.
