February 10 – Red’s Best Charts a Path Forward for Locally Sourced Seafood – Red’s Best is developing innovative technology to change the way fishermen sell to distributors and the way restaurateurs and consumers trace their seafood from boat to plate. And notwithstanding the gloom surrounding some of New England fishing operations, his business is thriving—since beginning six years ago, it’s grown from one employee to about fifty.

February 14 – Fish Talk in the News – Friday, February 14 – In this week’s Fish Talk in the News, NERO becomes GARFO; Maine scrambles to find an elver management solution before the season begins in March; more opposition arises to Doc Hastings’ MSA reauthorization draft; a new deal allows oyster farmers to use floating gear; Maine closes more coastal scallop areas; NEFSC releases data from a cooperative flatfish survey; Massachusetts will lose $34 million in direct revenue due to depleted stocks; Massachusetts clammers meet to discuss green crabs; the Senate Oceans Caucus supports treaties to fight pirate fishing; a New Bedford Standard-Times piece focuses on homeless scallopers.
