SouthCoastToday: For the 13th consecutive year, New Bedford is first in the nation in the commercial value of fish landed here, NOAA Fisheries announced Wednesday [October 30].
Dutch Harbor, Alaska was the top port in terms of volume in 2012, but New Bedford‘s dollar value, $411 million, was nearly double that of Dutch Harbor, $214 million.
Eighty percent of New Bedford‘s catch is scallops; for Dutch Harbor it is wall-eyed pollock.
