Maine Scallop Management Meetings and Proposals

DMR is in the process of rebuilding Maine’s scallop resource, and an integral part of the rebuilding strategy has been the implementation of Closed Areas. After being in place for three years, these closures will sunset this year (2012) and a new rotational management plan is being proposed by DMR to create a more predictable and profitable fishery.

Several meetings with the industry were held during 2012, and their summaries and the resulting proposed regulations are below, most recent first. Summaries are PDF files, which may require Adobe Reader software (download here free) to view or print.
