URGENT! RE: Commercial Scalloping

This just in:

There is chatter around the waterfront tonite. I've been hearing from some of my informants that there may be a change to the size of the raised annual growth rings on the scallops that we will be allowed to commercially harvest this upcoming season. This year, the adult scallops have a very small raised growth ring, perhaps 5 mm. I'm hearing that the powers that be are looking to only allow the fishermen to keep scallops with a 10mm growth ring and no less. 

There will be a meeting of the scallopers at the Maria Mitchell Association on Vestal Street at noon tomorrow (Wed October 22). I will be in attendance. Hope to see any concerned scallopers there.
Please get the word out.
