Maine Shrimp Season Limits

Working Waterfront reports that the 2011-2012 Maine Shrimp season is being curtailed.

On October 28, regulators with the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission imposed new restrictions for the upcoming shrimping season, including halving the season’s total allowable catch to 2,000 metric tons. Also, the start of the northern shrimp-fishing season was pushed back into early 2012.
