This Week on TalkingFish.org – June 3-7


June 6 – The Most Valuable Fishery You’ve Never Heard Of – On May 31, Maine’s elver fishing season came to a close. For the small number of Maine fishermen who can make over $100,000 in two months capturing elvers, the end of the season may come as a bit of a letdown. For the regulators and conservation officers who try to manage the fishery, however, the close probably comes none too soon.
