On today’s THE FOOD SEEN, we take a “day” trip with Togue Brown, the woman behind Maine Dayboat Scallops. Maine is often know for it’s lobster, but don’t discredit the bivalve. From the thousand pound catch days, to small boat fishermen now regulated at 20 gallons per, Togue’s hopes are to revive Maine’s coastal industry, and redefine seafood, in what we’ll call the “Maine Event”. This episode has been brought to you by The Greenhouse Tavern.
“You need to control the harvest. You should be allowed to make money, but you need to stop fishing when there are still enough scallops on the bottom so that they can replenish, grow, and give you more the following year.” [27:15]
