Fisheries and Aquaculture Staff Remove Bay Scallop Sanctuary from Local Waters Following Project Completion

With the conclusion of their project, Fisheries & Aquaculture staff removed a bay scallop sanctuary in West Falmouth Harbor recently. The sanctuary was a ‘fence’ design used by the Norwegians modified for their purposes. They stocked it several times over the years with pre-spawn bay scallops in the hopes of boosting the resident population(s). Thanks to Falmouth Marine and Environmental Services for their assistance removing gear – especially the large amount of chain used to hold it!
