Maine shrimp season shortened, quota halved

Last year's quota was 4,000 metric tons (actual catch was 6,000+). This year, the quota will be 2,000 metric tons, with the season starting on January 2, 2012, a month later than last year.

      while agree, unfortunate, most likely the only way your daughters children will ever know what shrimp from the new england ocean actually taste like
