Shucks Trap-to-Table Proposal

Today’s Press Herald reports on a proposal By Shucks Maine Lobster to build a “processing plant, seafood restaurant and marine education center” on the Fish Pier.

Hathaway plans to put up a two-story, 16,000-square-foot building that will be a combination lobster processing plant, raw bar, marine heritage display and test kitchen called the Maine Sustainable Seafood Center. The combined business would create up to 80 new jobs, Hathaway estimated.

His vision is a “trap-to-table” experience that gives customers a chance to learn more about how seafood gets from the ocean to their plates and meet the people who put it there.
