Connecting you to Maine's Fishing Community
Rugged Seas donates a portion of sales to the Maine Lobstermen's Association and the Maine Coast Fishermen's Association. As a retailer of Rugged Seas apparel and gear, Beach Grass also donates a percent-of-sales to the two organizations.
In his own words, Taylor Strout talks about his company, Rugged Seas:
"Our brand is as tough as the people who fish our oceans and live in our coastal communities. Rugged Seas isn't just for the fishermen who work year-round and through all kinds of weather to bring seafood to the table -- it's for all of us who love and respect the ocean and what it does for us."
"It's important to me to shine a light on what the people who fish our waters do everyday. We all, quite literally, throw our lives on the line each time we set foot on deck and set out to sea to bring fresh quality food to our tables."
"Not only is it a dangerous career, there are many other struggles fishermen face within our industry. Our goal is to take something that represents every fishery -- fisherman's hauling pants (bibs) -- and turn them into something recognizable, for everyone to utilize and enjoy."
