Scallop Harvest at Near Record Level!
Sea scallops, which are harvested by boats working in the cold Atlantic ocean, are the target of one of the most valuable fisheries in America. Data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) shows that the 2018 harvest topped 58.2 million pounds - that's the highest total since 2011 and the 5th highest in history, according to statistics going back to 1945! Whenever we go offshore fishing, it's common to see a dozen (+/-) large steel-hull scallop boats from Ports ranging from Virginia to Atlantic City, feverishly working to dredge - up scallops anywhere from about 30-55 miles off of the beach. The port of Cape May, NJ is continually one of the highest producing scallop ports on the East coast!
