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.

Dock Sales Scallop Update

photo-1 Rimrack ‘scallops off-the-boat’ dock sales Saturday, April 5th.
No Sunday Dock Sales this week.
For additional availability, Rimrack Scallops can be found at Sanders Fish Market and Sanders Fish Truck in Concord NH.

Think about planning your order & pick-up at either 12 noon or 5pm. Depending on demand and catch next weekend, we hope to have extra availability (first come, first serve :)

We expect to stop scallop fishing sometime around the third week in April to head to the Cape until mid-summer when we hope to resume scalloping when we return. Remember that scallops freeze exceptionally well – Most of our customers take advantage of freezing extra for this time.

Photo: Too easy to make…Potato pancakes, flounder & scallops, flour dusted with touch of  Tony Chachere’s seasoning, seared in med-high heat  in olive oil and butter. Tartar sauce: 1/2 cup mayo, fine diced 2T pickle, 1 T capers, 1t course mustard, 1-2T white champagne or coconut vinegar. Must have lemon and avocado :)
