Maine Proposes New Scallop Rules
August 30, 2013
BangorDailyNews.com: [Maine’s] scallop fishermen could end up facing the same restrictions for the upcoming scallop season that they did this past winter, according to a proposal released this month (August 2013) by state officials.
Like last year, the Maine Department of Marine Resources is proposing to limit scallop fishing along most of the coast to 70 days and in Cobscook Bay to 44 days. Fishermen still would be limited to catching 10 gallons a day in Cobscook Bay on days they are allowed to fish there and, as they were for most of last winter, to 15 gallons a day everywhere else.
