Lagoon Pond

MVGazette: A portion of Lagoon Pond on the Vineyard Haven side was closed to bay scalloping this week [November 18-22] protect a healthy crop of seed scallops in the area.

Acting on the recommendation of town shellfish constable Danielle Ewart, the Tisbury selectmen voted 2-0 with one abstention to close the Lagoon from an area near Maciel Marine to the Oak Bluffs town line and the day marker off Hines Point. The area reserved for dipnetting will remain open; maps of the closed area are posted to inform scallopers.

The decision drew vocal protest from commercial scallopers.
