Short catches lead to extension of shrimping season
According to the Department of Marine Resources (DMR), through the first six weeks of the season that opened Jan. 23, Maine trawl fishermen landed 205.1 metric tons (452,130 pounds) of shrimp. Including landings in Massachusetts and New Hampshire, the six-week total was 246.2 metric tons (542,845 pounds). That represents slightly less than 46 percent of the 539.02 metric ton total allowable catch (TAC) allocated to trawlers for the entire season.
