Clammers on Cape Cod are getting help with their bottom line thanks to aid from the Cape Cod Fisheries Trust, according to an article on CapeCodOnline.com.
More and more fisheries are coming under quota management, which portions out what fishery managers consider a sustainable annual catch among fishermen according to how much they caught in the past. Fishermen can then buy or lease more quota shares or lease or even sell off their shares. The current demand for quota usually sets the price.
