2019-2020 Sea Scallop Research Set-Aside Awards Announced

The CFRF is pleased to announce our recent selection for the 2019-2020 Scallop RSA program. We are excited to get the project underway and to be among other great institutions spearheading regional scallop research!

The CFRF, in collaboration with Gulf of Maine Inc., will test the N-Viro dredge aboard limited access and general category scallop vessels to learn whether the gear will reduce bycatch and improve fuel efficiency. The N-Viro dredge was designed and successfully used in Scotland’s scallop fisheries. To read more about this year’s scallop RSA and other funded projects click HERE.
