Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
A new fishery in Maine
The Working Waterfront - 8/6/2012.
By Andrew Frederick – Though once considered the province of the adventurous gastronomic, squid have found a place among the palate of Maine eaters, and Port Clyde Fresh Catch can barely keep up with demand.
