Fishing Grounds of the Gulf of Maine

Misaine Bank - Lies N. of the western two-thirds of Quereau, at one place very near, but in general the banks are separated by some 20 miles of deep water. Its greatest length is 80 miles and its greatest width 40 miles. Depths ore from 40 to 00 fathoms over a bottom broken and rocky.

It is not of much importance as a fishing ground, although a few halibut trips are landed from it in most years.
