Maine officials to meet with scallop fishermen


WISCASSET, Maine

(NEWS CENTER) -- Maine Marine officials are reaching out to scallop fishermen before the start of the season that begins on Dec. 1.

Downeast scallop fisherman had their season cut short last winter and some are wondering what this coming season will bring. Several areas around the state will have targeted closures as the state looks to rebuild the fishery. Marine resource officials said they expect to cut days if scallops become too heavily depleted during the season, just like they did last year.

There's a second meeting for scallop fishermen Tuesday night from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m at the Lincoln County 911 Communications Center in Wiscasset.

Wednesday night there's another meeting from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m at the City Hall in Ellsworth.
