Beals to vote on aquaculture moratorium for Eastern Bay

by Nancy Beal

The Moosabec area’s Eastern Bay is a marine gold mine from which fishermen from Beals and Jonesport extract lobsters, clams, scallops, periwinkles, worms, and more. Its pristine waters also make it attractive for aquaculturists, especially salmon growers. Over the past three decades, increasingly larger areas of its waters have been removed from access by traditional fishermen and given over to exclusive use by large, often foreign, corporations who commandeer acres of ocean for salmon net pens.
