Shrimp news.

shrimp

 

 

The ASMFC held their shrimp meeting last week.  As expected, the season will remain closed with the exception of a number of boats getting lottery exemption for research.  You can read about it from the Portland Press Herald.

Fall Update

It is sad news for us to share with our valued customers, friends and community that we have been able to make only a handful of trips (herring/tuna) and not a promising outlook for fishing or dock sales in the near future. The shrimp season looks like it will be closed again, unless we are chosen for one of four research boats out of MA,NH,ME,  which means we would have limited dock sales. In addition, the federal NGOM scallop season was closed last May and will not open until March 1, 2017. It would not be unrealistic to expect that the 2017 season will be short. Our current plan is to take ‘standing orders’ for pickup as notified during that time.

The bottom line, as what we have come to know well, is a ‘wait and see’ and ‘stay tuned’….

We will post here and Facebook  any news or updates.

In the meantime, have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

Summer Update – Squid, Herring and Scallop news

 

It has been a great squiIMG_2360d season this year with good catches and meeting up with old and new friends. Some people were lucky enough to get some of our squid through Amanda at New England Fishmongers. Hopefully next year the availability will increase! It’s all fun and very healthy making local seafood accessible. Think new recipes to try! check out Thanh’s Kitchen Sauteed Squid!

Now the bad news…. NOAA/NMFS shut down the scallop season as the annual quota was reached for the northern Gulf of Maine. The new season starts March 1, 2017. Yes, that means we can not go scallop fishing until then…unless, the State of Massachusetts requests an exemption to fish state waters. This may, or may not happen…probably not in time if at all.

In the meantime, on the Rimrack return to Rye, we will give it a go for herring fishing. Stay tuned to the website or facebook for further updates as they happen.
