The Scallopers Campaign… working to bring flexibility, safety, and fairness to the Atlantic sea scallop fishery.
The Scallopers Campaign seeks flexibility, safety, and fairness in the Atlantic sea scallop fishery. We work with hundreds of scallop vessel owners, their crews, and other supporters to develop science-based, practical solutions to the challenges facing our fishery.
Building on a super-majority of vessel owner support within the Limited Access fleet, our goal is to work through the New England Fishery Management Council process to develop and implement a leasing program within the Limited Access sea scallop fishery.
It All Adds Up
The need for flexibility in the LA scallop fishery has never been greater – and with the rising costs of fuel, insurance, maintenance and more, this need will only become more urgent.
